Podcast Of The Week: Yasiin Bey (Mos Def) On Music, Life, And His Career

Yassin Bey, aka Mos Def, has a short Audible audiobook titled, “A Dynamic Career in Communications.”

The music and stories are fantastic. Especially if you’re a fan. But he’s got some quotes. 

This one on in particular, hit me hard. He was talking about church as a sacred and safe space in his childhood. He was talking about a version of spiritual loyalties that we gravitate towards in life. 

Human beings are naturally devoted. The question is what are you devoted to? 

Your job is not your identity. The might Mos gets it. If you’re a fan, you need to give this an hour of your time.

ps. “Don’t sell yourself to fall in love with the things you do.” Why? Because you know what love is.
