Current Music Presents: Embedded with Mos Def

one of my new favorite shows! :)

"Im not an engineer, Im not an artist, Im not a painter, Im not a designer, Im an MC" -Mos Def :)

This is part 1 of Embedded with Mos Def in Japan.

On this special hour-long Embedded, Mos Def takes us on an all access seven-day tour of Japan while he performs his new album "The Ecstatic" to packed venues in Tokyo and Osaka.

In part 1, Mos Def explores Tokyo's fashionable Harajuku district, where he buys a spiky blue jacket that baffles his crew. Plus Mos discovers why so many people in Japan wear surgical masks and learns there's no way a black man in Japan being followed by a camera crew can fly under the radar.

Current Music Presents: Embedded is a six part special that puts you on the ground and behind the scenes with unrivaled access to your favorite musicians. We've traveled the world, going beyond performances to bring you the most intimate and unfiltered moments in artists' lives. When others stop the cameras, we capture the real story of today's top musicians.
