Mos Def Gets Locked Up!
Mos Def found himself sleeping in jail last night after he gave a surprise performance outside the MTV VMAs. The impromptu performance got him in trouble with the coppers, because he didn't have permission.
The rapper, born Dante Smith, was charged with disorderly conduct after attempting to perform on a flatbed truck for a crowd outside of the event.
Police ordered the rapper to end his impromptu performance of "Katrina Clap," a freestyle criticizing the Bush administration's response to the Hurricane Katrina disaster.
The request to halt the performance was not immediately relayed to MOs Def. According to reports, members of the rapper's entourage were arrested as well.
Representatives for MOs Def said the rapper was unjustly arrested and that the whole situation was captured on camera.
Mos Def was released this morning (Sept. 1).
I could name a lot of other people that had permission to perform that should've been arrested. Justin Timberlake and Panic! at the Disco to name a few. Horrendous!
