Mos Def + Street Art

I usually like to keep any music related visuals I find to run on Friday when I feature my Friday Video, but I couldn’t get this image out of my mind.  This was taken by Jonathan Mannion for The Fader.

I love all things Mos Def.  From his films, 16 Blocks and Be Kind Rewind, to his records, “Definition” and “Respiration”.  I think he’s one of the most understated artists out there.  This is a great shot.  I’m diggin’ the way the colors in his wardrobe were inspired by the street art.

My love of style, music and art are all captured here.  So dope.
