Regarded as one of hip-hop's most introspective and insightful artists, MOS DEF (Eddie Bunker) has shaped a career that transcends music genres and artistic medium. A child of hip-hop's Golden Era, the native Brooklynite spent his childhood imbedded in the culture surrounding him as well as absorbing knowledge from across the artistic spectrum. 

With the release of "Universal Magnetic” (1996) Mos Def became an underground favorite in the hip hop world, leading to his legendary collaboration with Talib Kweli. The two formed Black Star whose debut album, Mos Def and Talib Kweli Are…Black Star, would become one of the most critically acclaimed hip-hop albums of all time. Def followed that release with his 1999 solo debut Black on Both Sides, which was certified gold and credited by critics as bringing hip-hop back to its soapbox roots.

As with his music, Mos Def has demonstrated insight and passion with his acting career, appearing in Spike Lee's Bamboozled, MTV's Carmen: A Hip Hopera, 2002's critically acclaimed Monster's Ball, Showtime and the 2002 romantic comedy Brown Sugar, for which he received an NAACP Image Award nomination. In addition, Def has served as the host, music supervisor and co-executive producer for the HBO series Def Poetry and also served as a writer, producer and actor on the MTV sketch comedy series Lyricist Lounge. He completed his Broadway debut in 2002 in the Tony nominated, Pulitzer Prize-winning Topdog/Underdog, and re-teamed with Topdog playwright Suzan Lori Parks and director George Wolfe for the off-Broadway play Fucking A, for which he was awarded an Obie Award.

In 2003, Def starred in The Italian Job alongside Ed Norton, Mark Wahlberg and Charlize Theron. Last year he starred opposite Alan Rickman in the critically acclaimed HBO movie Something the Lord Made, for which he received a 2004 Emmy Nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or a Movie. Def was also nominated for a Golden Globe Award, NAACP Award and Golden Satellite Award for the same role. He was also seen on the big screen in 2004 in the feature film The Woodsman with Kevin Bacon, Benjamin Bratt, Eve and Kyra Sedgwick. 

Also in 2004, Def released his highly anticipated and critically acclaimed sophomore solo release The New Danger (Geffen Records). The album was met with praise from both critics and fans alike, with Rolling Stone giving it 4 Stars. The first single "Sex, Love and Money” earned Def a 2005 Grammy nomination for Best Alternative/Urban Performance.

Def recently received rave reviews for his role as Ford Prefect in the film adaptation of the classic Douglas Adams science fiction novel, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. The film debuted at #1 at the box office when it hit theaters in April of 2005. Next up for Def is the Breed Love Odyssey Tour with Talib Kweli. The artists will join creative forces for the tour with House of Blues and Sony Computer Entertainment America to launch the PlayStation Portable.

Def also just completed work on the film Journey to the End of the Night in which he co-stars alongside Brendan Fraser. The film will hit theaters later this year.
