Mos Def Demands BET Awards Show Tribute For Troy Davis (Video)

Mos Def & Talib Kweli were scheduled to perform here in Atlanta last Thursday night, but the show was cancelled following the recent execution of Troy Davis by the state of Georgia. As Black Star, Mos & Kweli opted to cancel their show in protest. I’m not mad & I applaud them for doing so. Troy Davis will officially be buried this Saturday & almost simultaneously the 2011 BET Hip Hop Awards will be taking place in Atlanta. While at their Miami show Mos Def took the opportunity to send a message to the powers at BET to make sure they dedicated a segment to a man who was executed with no evidence of guilt. Should be interesting to see how many other artists will speak out if given the platform.
