"An Open Letter To Mos Def"


  

          

This has to be said. Yes, you are a musical mastermind, we know this. And yeah we know that you're not the average run-of-the-mill hip hop artist either. What we don't know is this: what's up with these performances?! I saw you at SpitKickers, I know what you can do live. But for some reason the last 3-4 times I've seen you on stage I've just been left...scratching my head.

Don't the blank stares bother you? That would probably haunt my dreams. You've had to notice, so are you trying to send us the message that connecting with the crowd is not a priority? So what is your goal? Do you want to experiment/try out new material? Because without that connection it comes off as if you don't care. And we refuse to believe that because we still care, a lot, actually! This is like a relationship where you have all the "hand" and you know it. You treat us however, leave us wanting more, and then when we beg for an encore (because you know we will) we get a quick "Umi Says" and you're gone just as fast as you came. Your set comes off as chaotic and convoluted and my thing is that if you have not one single bad album, how can you have (multiple) bad performances!?

I'm not saying that us die hard fans aren't interested in hearing/seeing the more experimental or new material, I just don't think Rock the Bells is an ideal setting. At a giant festival give us the bangers and the classics, it's only right!

I remember when I first got True Magic I recognized some of the songs from a live performance I'd just seen but I also remember being confused as hell at that performance! I (subsequently) love True Magic so I feel the audience can really appreciate a new song during a 5-6 song set, but any more than that and we're going to get antsy.

That's my piece. A new approach would be appreciated but in the end you're Mos Def and we're your loyal fans so do what you want

Correction. He has two bad albums (True Magic, New Danger).

But that letter is well-written and heartfelt. It would be interesting if you got a response.

Are you joking? New Danger was a great album. Just because it had a different sound its bad? That album had about 10 really solid tracks and the only song I personally didn't care for was Zimzallabim. That was a really solid effort by Mos.

^^ TRUE STATEMENT ^^^^

New Danger was sick as well in my opinion at least 7 true bangers on that album. He does come across well at Rock the Bells, no one does in my opinion sound is jacked people late, they put Doom on the bill every year and he usually doesn't show. Mos shines by himself though saw him in richmond last year, and i can't wait for the Kennedy center shit, that will be sick nasty.

And he was great yesterday @ Rock the Bells. Came out in a cape & everything. Fitting, being that he's Mighty Mos an' all. Give the
Brothah some breathing room 4 Pete's Sake. As far as I'M concerned, he's picking up where Chuck Berry left off. And building on the work of Living Color. If y'all are giving him blank stares in the front, y'all a**es don't need 2 b UP in the front. Put me up there. I get where he's going artistically, and would have NO problems showing appreciation 4 it.

I agree to certain extent. i do feel that at Rock The Bells a more "banger" is suitable for the audience but especially the time slot. I was at the chicago RTB and i mean the set was great, simply b/c mos is a genius and one of my fav musicians ever. but at rtb i need to hear definition, do it now, math, sunshine, beef, those classics!!



i feel mos's strength in shows comes like the show at carnigie hall w/ gill. even thought i was not there, all i heard was rave remarks on the appeal of the show. that is where i feel mos excels! this guy cannot have a timeslot, mos is a dynamic unique artist that flurish's in a liberation of interaction with the music.

now i am simply a fan, just throwing my 2 sense in and no i do not know what mos should do, and mos u do whatever u feel like at RTB...

Cant wait for the new album!!

peace

I saw Mos last year in NY during the Rock the Bells festival. Lets just say that he did not live up to what he is truly capable of. Sadly enough, I truly feel that b/c of his success in film, as well as the fact that he knows folks are gonna cop his album regardless of quality, his check is in the bank for the show already, and people will keep on coming to see him in hopes that maybe the Mos that goes out of his way to rock the party MIGHT show up, he will continue to do this. It was amazing how much of a better show Kweli put on, and how everyone was psyched about them regrouping on stage, yet how piss poor of a show he put on himself. We ain't pay good money to see you attempt to sing and refuse to perform joints that "THE PEOPLE LIKE"! That is why your able to perform, did you forget that!?

he has a time slot, and frankly any mos def show I've been to has run over the scheduled time...Check out the rock the bells dvd and see how chaotic and confusing the backstage area is, and then maybe you'll decide you shouldn't be so selfish. On top of all this you actually come off as someone who does give a shit, and may know a little bit about good music. So why would you frown upon someone hailed as a musical genius experimenting in front of a live audience. Maybe he learned his lesson on his "bad album" and now likes to try out the material before pressing it up? I personally think these kind of shows are dope, who's gonna remember the 30 times they heard umi says at a mos show? not me, I'd rather go and get a chance to see the "hendrix doing the national anthem" type mos def where you'll be blown away by something you never expected... Maybe the crowd was wack, a show like rock the bells, depending on who's billed will bring all sorts of heads which is another reason he may have tried out some new ish...
but seriously, try and see him again, see if it's billed as mos w/ dj or mos w/ band or whatever. When you see and hear my man rock some BBD poison and the whole joint freaks the fuck out...
tell me he's wack, i dare you.

I dealt with this crap at two Rock The Bells performances last year, and I'm sure he'll have the same problem when I see him next week at Rock The Bells.

He doesn't even do songs half the time. Much of his set is like "Mos Def's iTunes playlist."

He's just leaving people confused, and bored ("hey, let's go get a beer before Nas comes on.")

Mos can do new songs, sure. But if he's not doing "Umi Says," "Ms. Fat Booty," "Definition," at these shows, he's not going to win the crowd over AT ALL.

(of course, this only applies to Mos Def shows without a band.)

Mos always has and always will do the work that he wants to do when he wants to do it,
whether you like it or not. if you're a fan you should be open and give him liberty to express himself in whatever form he chooses. he's going to anyway.

I have never seen this happen at a DC/MD show ever. his sets have always been dope, off the hook...really good. it sucks that some people get a little and some get a lot but I do know that in DC/MD his show was a lot different than the one I saw him do in NY. but they both were still better than what you have described.

True Magic, while still better than 70% of hip-hop out there, was weak for Mos. As of right now Black on Both Sides is his best album. Hopefully he'll stop singing so much and get back to being an ill-ass emcee and spit some more fire like he did with "Close Edge"

Can't wait for The Ecstatic to drop

LOL... I saw mos def, not that much but like 3 times maybe... And it was all good, and always better... One time in paris, where i come from. And two times here... With Carnegie hall.. It was one of my best show ever... The musicians, him... The dilla's tribute... Him speaking... Tribute to jay eletronica... doin de la soul's song..
HE is great when he experiments new stuff... U can't wait from an artist to always do the same when he does some new stuff and experiments... And say to one who does always the same since 10 years that he is boring and has to change...

Mos def is great on stage i think.. Better with a band for sure... Look like now he needs this band with him to shine.

He was pretty week at rock the bells SF last year. His worst show i have seen, but he translates a hell of a lot better with a live band or Pharoahe Monch so i may have been spoiled the other times i have seen him.

that said the shit!

It's not like no one agrees with me. I'm just the one that wanted to know bad enough to speak the fuck up and ask.

All in all I'm just another fan. Who the fuck are you to say what I can and cannot comment on?

In response to Reply # 0


          

In my humble opinion, you go to a festival to catch a bunch of your favorite artists all in one place, and hope to stumble upon some cats you're heard of (or maybe you haven't)that peak your interest. Or at least give you an incling of what their about. It's rare to see a short set that knocks you on your ass, especially in a huge venue festival setting.

I've seen the mighty mos about 20 times since 2000. He is consistently one of the best hip hop performers out there. One of, if not the best I've ever seen. And believe me when I say I see a ton of shows. One of the perks of living in the LA area. Catch him in any smaller club across the country and I guarantee you won't be disappointed.

best mos moment: hob hollywood, me on the wall center stage
on stage is mos, kweli, common, kanye and will.. all bouncin within 20 ft of me. DOPE! some chump next to me even got all of them to sign his hat during the song. ridiculous. now i wish is was that chump

and he killed dat shit. Did about an hour and a half show, and an encore. Dude just likes to perform... old stuff, new stuff, stuff he just made up and some songs that weren't even his. The crowd does go wild when the classics play, but i liked to hear new stuff.I like to see artists do their thing. Besides if you want to hear the bangers, you always have the CD.

i was at RTB in boston, and mos def actually did a lot of older stuff off of black on both sides. though maybe the first 15 mins was sing-song stuff, he wasn't as dissapointing as you made it sound. i guess i would have been pissed if he did experimenting the whole time, but my guess is he gauges things based on the crowd. the boston crowd kind of sucked, they weren't feeling pharcyde or de la very much, so maybe mos decided it wouldn't be a good crowd to experiment with.


w/e, he did ms. fat booty, hip hop, love, close edge, the boogieman song, & of course umi says... so i was happy

I've never had the pleasure of seeing Mos live. My sister saw him in NY a minute ago and said it was off the chain. When I get my paper up and I have the opportunity, I'm definitely gonna have to see for myself.

Mos is an incredible artist, that's "Undeniable" !
I love all of his LPs, EPs. guest appearances, & bootlegs
My most cherished download is a recording of the Mighty Mos
performing Stevie Wonders Too High. You never know what you'll
get at a live show and I hope Mos doesn't change that before
I have chance to see him a dozen more times.

i did read it. When you first posted it a month ago.

i just think its ridiculous. its like you're taking what Mos Def

does personally. those questions you're asking him, 'don't the

blank stares bother you?' Mos is an artist. He's always done

what he's wanted to do when he wants to do it. It's obvious

at this point he isn't content with just making rap records

and performing them live. take it for what it is and if you enjoy

it all the better. personally, i think what happened with Mos is

similar to what happened to Bob Dylan in the 60s (except on

a much smaller scale for Mos). when he came out with BOBS

after Black Star, everybody was labeling him this one thing and

putting him in a box. i think that made him want to do a lot of

other types of music and performances.
