Mos Def announces retirement, last album

Late last night came “A Message from Yasiin Bey” as tweeted and promoted on KanyeWest.com. In it, he declares No More Parties in S.A. (South Africa) and announces his retirement from the music and film industry “effective immediately.”

But that said, he’ll still have one curtain call of an album, which he teased on Instagram with some big name collabs upcoming.

12 more hours, 12 less lonely souls complimentary for those who listen to your hearts.
