In a message posted to Kanye West’s own website, Mos Def spoke out his retirement from the music business, his recent arrest involving passport issues, personal politics, and career prospects.

“I’m retiring from the music recording industry as it is currently assembled today. And also from Hollywood effective immediately,” the MC said. “I’ll be releasing my final album this year, and that’s that. Peace to all, fear of none.” via gothamist.
