Tif's tales: Mos Def is a thief!
Today, Midnight Sun guest columnist Tif shares another one of his hip-hop memories. Take it away, Tif:
I remember when I was invited back to the green room at Rams Head @ Power Plant Live for a Mos Def performance.
My partner was getting Mos to wear his new clothing line when Mos yelled to his people "yall find that Wire DVD yet?"
They replied, "Best Buy didn't have it, we can't locate a copy, etc."
I said, "Mos, I have all seasons on DVD." ...
Instead, he said "give them to the guy -- I want to come out to 'The Wire'."
I was alarmed because I didn't know he wanted them on the huge Ram's Head screen. Let's just say my DVD's didn't come from HBO, and I wasn't sure if they'd play on their system. I was terrified they wouldn't, but thankfully, they did.
The show ended, we partied and Mos left town with my entire Wire first season DVD set. I plan to file a grievance.
