MTV News caught up with Mos Def who says his follow-up to 1999’s ‘Black on Both Sides’ will drop soon. “I never left, man,” Mos declared. “I just stay quiet, but I be working all the time. I’ve been in the studio so much. I haven’t released anything. People know that I’m a musician.

We the champs that nobody wants. I call [the music’s feel] ‘ghetto rock.’ It’s no description I could give it because it’s new. It’s new to my ears. It don’t sound like nothing nobody’s doing or what I’ve heard anybody do.” Read more.
