i have a great blackstar mixtape...if you're a diehard kweli/def fan, you might've heard most of it, but it's some dope remixes, freestyles, etc courtesy of DJ Lt. Brown (i think). let me know if you want it and i'll hook you up.

On the real though, wtf? We obviously don't even have the 1st amendment anymore. The pigs of america are strippin away every constitutional right we're supposed to be guarenteed. I bet ya if Mos was singin some God Bless America shit he'd still be standing there. Fuck Bush and everyone else up in Washington.

Yeah, sometimes cops got to what needs to be done when someone breaks rules u know. Otherwise they lose credibility.
Anyways, Mos Def still rocks ass :D

What "needs to be done" in that case though? He's on a corner givin a performance. They ain't arrestin bums playing guitars for spar change right? They arrested Mos for what he was sayin not for where he was at.Complete Bullshit

its called " freedom of speech "

i think it should exist in the country nicknamed
" land of the free "

comedians can make jokes about bush on how bad he manages his work

but mos def can't rhyme about how bad bush manages his work

It attracks a crowd, public disturbance.
If it was because of what he was saying and shit, then yes, it would be fucking stupid to arrest him.

Conspiracy Theory -

Mos Def arrested because of the songs content, no permit, or simply because MTV wanted him arrested for doing the performance anyway when MTV wouldn't let 'em???

Now the way the cops treated Mos was unneccasery accordin to on lookers - they say the cop that hand cuffed him was being very forceful while Mos Def was cooperating...

ur all fucking clowns, u cant just set up a stage in the middle of NYC and start performing, regardless of how spike lee'd ur message is, he got arrested because there was no permits and the city's liable for anyone getting fucked up during that

it wasnt about the content as much as how he went about doing it.
mtv wouldnt greenlight a performance from him so he did one himself.
that why he was arrested not because of the type of song it was.
But why didn't MTV green light this performance?
What are they trying to hide?
When BONO did this he almost completed the entire video before the cops stopped the performance...
Can we say OPRESSION

i'm not defending viacom by any means at all, somone just said theyre republican, but i get what you're saying yea theyre a part of the establishment, and the establishment always rolls as one. thats why the establishment has been able to keep all of us "in our place" and will continue too forever

Cops always in the wrong place.. I bet while like 10 of them was worrying about getting Mos Def in jail, two crackheads were rapping a little girl, another shot a crackdealer and killed him, and all that shit... nawmean.. typical shit these days.

I think this was just because he set up a stage in the middle of the street, if he had just a microphone and a speaker i bet nothing would have happened.

The revolution does appreciate all your concerns though.
