Mos Def & Damon Dash Working on Rock Doc?

Brooklyn rapper/actor Mos Def recently announced his plans to produce a documentary about obscure 1970s punk band, Death.

In the new issue of Filter magazine, The Mighty Mos briefly discussed possibly collaborating with ex- Roc-A-Fella big Damon Dash to make the film about the black rock group, made up of three brothers from Detroit.

“It’s going to be great,” Mos told Filter. “These dudes were pre-Sex Pistols, pre-Bad Brains, pre-all that shit, and nobody knows them. I don’t understand how the whole world could forget them.”

While he remained tight-lipped about his role in the project, the Harlem mogul sang the Brooklyn MC’s praises when contacted by

“Anything Mos wants to do I’ll do cause I think he’s intelligent,” Dash said. “I think he’s a great ambassador for hip-hop. I personally don’t like to talk about things until it’s done. So when it’s done, when it’s ready—all I’m saying is that Mos Def is a really ill dude.”

Mos Def released his fourth solo album, The Ecstatic, in June. –John Kennedy, with additional reporting by Clover Hope
