Yasiin Bey Voluntarily Force-Fed To Spread Awareness

Mos Def

In the video below, Yasiin Bey (aka Mos Def) is voluntarily force fed to spread the message (to Americans) about the prisoners in Guantánamo Bay — even during the observance of Ramadan. According to the Guardian, there are currently 120 detainees on hunger strike in Guantánamo Bay. We believe this is the perfect demonstration of spreading a message with the use of popularity / celebrity. In fact, it is social responsibility at its finest. Now, we understand why he changed his name. Watch it now. *Warning: It’s NSFW
