Mos Def Wanted For Vegas Robbery

Mos Def is a wanted man. Las Vegas Police recently issued a warrant for the rapper/actor’s arrest regarding an alleged fight with a photographer this past August.

The photographer, Volker Correll, contends that a scuffle ensued when Mos ripped a camera from his neck. Per the Vegas Police Department, the Brooklynite will face robbery and destruction of property charges when turning himself in. The warrant was reportedly issued nearly a week ago (11/04), but Mos has yet to surrender to the authorities. Police expect Mos to turn himself in by week’s end.

The confrontation allegedly occurred at the Men’s Apparel And Garment Industry Convention. Corell claims he suffered a cut on his left hand during the scuffle and that two security guards at the convention had to take his camera back from Mos. According to court documents, the camera was damaged and will require repairs of $178. -Marvin Brandon

    What the article doesn’t tell was the reason Mos Def did that shit was because they had a pic of me smacking the shit outta Big Meech 10 yrs ago @ the Freak Neek in Atlanta and him making my extortion payment of $80 per month. Nigga I was the Junior Crip of the Year 2 times. One time I was in Houston when J. Prince gave me my 13.00 extortion payment he had the last dollar in Quarters I then smacked the shit outta his hands then went in on his bitch azz. Mos Def is hiding @ our Crip Hub in Nutty Blocc. Spider Loc has 3 niggaz watching him so no paperazzi inturpt him. I wanna kill so bad my diccs hard nigga!!! oowwww weeee!!!

    Police don’t like MOSdef because he’s outspoken about inequality!!!! The camera papparrazzi dude should get a gunshot to his face for being a grimy vagina!!

    these dudes deserve whatever they get. can u imagine doing everything with a bunch of cameras in your face everyday? most of us would be catching cases all the time too for slapping these dudes up. peace to mos though, he just did a FREE concert out here in west oakland a few weeks ago. dude was walking through the hood with no security or nothing. thats a real ass dude. more then i can say for most of these bitch ass rappers.
