Mos Def: Soul Power
Miles Marshall Lewis, The Fader, Spring 2000
MOS DEF is missing the Grammys. Holed up for the past two hours in studio one of the Rocket Rehearsal Studios, and unassuming red-brick building in Manhattan's Garment District, the Brooklyn-birthed MC has other priorities. Having just opened for Macy Gray at Roseland, Mos Def is devising a new set with his four-piece band and bassist Doug Wimpish (formerly of Living Colour and the Sugarhill Records session band) – for an upcoming show with D'Angelo at Radio City Music Hall.
