Mos Def on Barack Obama:

“America’s too vain, and he appeals to America’s sense of vanity. It’s the A & R guy in me . . . when I saw him on the cover of Men’s Vogue, I said, ‘This guy’s gonna win because he looks good.’ So, the best-looking guy for the job is a black guy. I’m cool with that. People also want a rock-star quality to the president, which he has.”

YES WE CAN!!!

  • Grace

    Mos Def is just keeping it real. I was watch a news story on tv a few years ago and they were talking about how America has never had balding, average height, or fat president.

  • SmoK.E.Y.

    my comment was in reference to mos def

    and He (mos def) wasn’t complimenting Obama fools!

  • RIP,RIP - meet Alexander O'Neal

    i dont think mos def is complimenting Obama on this one

    ^^^^^

    I believe I do understand where you’re going with this.But Mos is not that type of cat.Regardless if he was getting one in, he wouldn’t put it out there (like that).Good point though…

  • Spring Water

    As far as Obama’s capability of being a good president, it sounds like he’s dismissin it, saying he’s just gonna win because he looks good

  • eLone

    Ignorant comment by Mos Def. Who the hell is voting for him because he LOOKS good? If anything, it’s the way he sounds to the people who listen – the inspiration.

  • NotoriousOne

    Yeah thankfully America is off that “tough-as-nails Cowboys” mentality cause obviously 8 years of Bush ain’t do ish for this country!

    YES WE CAN!!

    OBAMA ’08 & ’12

  • Whatchaknoaboutdat?

    Like assholes…everybodies got an opinion!

  • kaykay

    mos def sucks. go Obama!

  • getyourhandouttamypocket

    Obama ’08!

  • NotoriousOne

    I think some people are reading too much into the statement. Mos Def is NOT saying that this is his opinion of Obama. He’s just saying that based on his A&R experience he realizes that some people are giving a chance in the business (or politics) based on their looks…but he’s not saying that just because he looks good doesn’t mean he doesn’t have any substance.

  • NotoriousOne

    @ Whatchaknoaboutdat?

    “Like assholes…everybodies got an opinion!”

    LMBAO…I’ve never heard it like that. I’ve heard, “opinions are like assholes, everybody has one.”

  • Cage

    Notorius what up fam… I used to say “Opinions are like assholes, everybody has one and they eventually stink…” Anyways Happy Monday peoples!! Time to actually start workin

  • victory is mine

    I stans for Mos Def love him…he could use some help w/the teeth though but other than that he could get it all day….Yes He Can…

    Obama ’08

  • Luving "The Wire" Forever..HOV

    Sup NO..

    I luv me some Mighty Mos Def. I’ld have to agree fully w/ what he said. I don’t know if it applies to Obama tho. I think he’s decent looking but i can’t see him winning b/c he “looks good”. I dunno about that one Mos Definetly.

  • Luving "The Wire" Forever..HOV

    I agree w/ the vanity part.

  • Luving "The Wire" Forever..HOV

    @ NO

    He’s just saying that based on his A&R experience he realizes that some people are giving a chance in the business (or politics) based on their looks…but he’s not saying that just because he looks good doesn’t mean he doesn’t have any substance.

    ————————————————-

    Now that is damn true. I intern at Interscope back in 2001 and saw this a lot. People are more inclinced to give u a chance if they think u look good. hence the vanity statement.

  • VGEEZY

    LMAO Mos Def teeth are gray as hell……All that money and dental work is STILL in order…..Only in Black America
