Yasiin Bey Court Case Delayed


Back in January the rapper formerly known as Mos Def was detained in South Africa after trying to leave the country with an unaccepted World Passport [click here if you missed that]. 

After being turned away from court for inappropriate attire, Yasiin Bey's case has been postponed...

According to reports Yasiin Bey was not allowed to enter court yesterday after refusing to remove a turban from his head. 

After returning to the courthouse later in the day, with a scarf loosely draped across his skull, the case was postponed pending further investigation into whether or not Bey had overstayed his artist Visa or broke any laws with his World Passport. 

The next hearing is set for March 24.

Watch your back Mos Def. Once you start talking truth your life becomes impossible. So the question is what are they afraid of?

All this to avoid paying taxes and child support. Honestly I don't get see he got this far in the social media world when the best thing he EVER did was 1997 "Ms. Fat Booty". And even that song was 85% good beat. Leave him there and let him wear his hat.

I go to court a lot for work and I can tell you if the judge thinks you're dressed like it's any other day instead of dressed for court, they'll take it as an insult and throw you out until you learn how to dress for the occasion. Dress like you care what happens in court.

Perhaps the thinking was he might have concealed a weapon under his turban.

When they say take it off, you take it off.
