Mos did not sound dumb to me on that video. Cam would not be able to participate in a debate like that with out deliberately yelling over people, or saying some ignorant sounding s**t like "U MAD!!!!!!!!!!"

Mos Def repeatedly speaks over the other panelists in this video; you can see him physically straining at times. He was on the verge of "yelling" because he simply does not have the education or intellectual capacity to be involved in a conversation with men like Hitchens & Rushdie - whose names he seemed rather unaware of when he attempted to reference them.

In the presence of educated persons, Mos Def is an idiot.
In the presence of the average numbskull that forms the hip-hop circle, Mos Def is smart.

It's not a difficult equation. And it can equally be said of Nas, Common, Kanye & almost any of the well-known, so-called "conscious" rappers.

I told you before, Boxden is not equivalent to speed dating. Please refrain from asking questions about me - it's pretty weird.

Now as to Mos Def, the famous rapper, what exactly did he study at "NYU" - music? Drama?

Link me to the video where he was "articulate". In the video clip in the opening post, Mos Def's use of the English language is rudimentary; worse, he stumbles repeatedly, fumbling for words & ideas that are almost always out of his reach.

I watched the video. Mos Def comes across as a fool in the video. What part don't I know? Come on, little guy - just walk away.
