What is left to say about Mos Def? Dude was in Black Star and a Jack Black movie. He has been nominated for both Source Awards and Tony Awards, and even won something called an Obie. (I don't even know what that is, but it sounds cool.) Plus in addition to his stacked trophy room, Mos Def is about to drop The Ecstatic on June 9th, which seems like it might be his best solo work since Black on Both Sides.

"The Mighty Mos Definite" is rolling through Portland and we are giving away a pair of tickets to see him at the Roseland Theater this Friday, May 22nd.

If you want to rock it on to the tip-top and see half of the best alliance in hip-hop (sorry, Talib), just comment below on why you think you deserve the tickets. The best response by tomorrow (Wednesday) at 5pm is the winner. Good luck.
