Mos Def Making Punk Documentary



Mos Def is currently teaming up with Roc-a-Fella records founder Damon Dash to bring us a documentary on Death, the mostly unknown, all-black punk band that formed in Detroit in 1971. The film is being directed by Coodie and Chike—who count Kanye West's music video for "Through the Wire" among their credit— and has already begun shooting. Mr. Def, is understandably excited, saying in an interview with Filter, "these dudes were pre-Sex Pistols, pre-Bad Brains, pre-all that shit, and nobody knows them. I don't understand how the whole world could forget them." (via NME)
