Hip-Hop went from selling crack to smoking it ~ Mos Def
Tenuously Def quotes by Mos Def

Tenuously Def quotes by Mos Def
Restlessness is my nemesis/ It's hard to just chill and sit still ~ Mos Def
Tenuously Def quotes by Mos Def
I'm retiring the Mos Def name after 2011. I'm actually doing it. ~ Mos Def
Tenuously Def quotes by Mos Def
Across from the famous jewelry store on Fifth Avenue at Fifty-Seventh Street, we sat in the back of a graffiti-covered white box truck watching the world go by on the surveillance vehicle's hidden high-def camera. So far there had been no sign of the thieves. Or even Audrey Hepburn. ~ James Patterson
Tenuously Def quotes by James Patterson
We can be beautiful and feel beautiful about who we are everyday. ~ Mos Def
Tenuously Def quotes by Mos Def
This thing called rhymin' is no different than coal minin';
We both on assignment to unearth the diamond. ~ Mos Def
Tenuously Def quotes by Mos Def
It didn't occur to me that I was glistening with sweat and wearing a bikini top until they turned off the bikes, pulled off their helmets and turned to scope me out. To make my own personal cliché perfect, Def Leppard's Pour Some Sugar On Me blasted through the radio. I winced – I must look like a white-trash princess from hell, basking outside my trailer in a bikini to outdated butt rock. ~ Joanna Wylde
Tenuously Def quotes by Joanna Wylde
Tagore claims that the first time he experienced the thrill of poetry was when he encountered the children's rhyme 'Jal pare/pata nare' ('Rain falls / The leaf trembles) n Iswrchandra Vidyasagar's Bengali primer Barna Parichay (Introducing the Alphabet). There are at least two revealing things about this citation. The first is that, as Bengali scholars have remarked, Tagore's memory, and predilection, lead him to misquote and rewrite the lines. The actual rhyme is in sadhu bhasha, or 'high' Bengali: 'Jal paritechhe / pata naritechhe' ('Rain falleth / the leaf trembleth'). This is precisely the sort of diction that Tagore chose for the English Gitanjali, which, with its these and thous, has so tried our patience. Yet, as a Bengali poet, Tagore's instinct was to simplify, and to draw language closer to speech. The other reason the lines of the rhyme are noteworthy, especially with regard to Tagore, is – despite their deceptively logical progression – their non-consecutive character. 'Rain falls' and 'the leaf trembles' are two independent, stand-alone observations: they don't necessarily have to follow each other. It's a feature of poetry commented upon by William Empson in Some Versions of Pastoral: that it's a genre that can get away with seamlessly joining two lines which are linked, otherwise, tenuously. ~ Amit Chaudhuri
Tenuously Def quotes by Amit Chaudhuri
My comedy has no color, it's for everybody, black, white, Latino, Asian. It's not a pro-black show, not a def jam show; it's just straight, wholesome type of humor. ~ Bruce Bruce
Tenuously Def quotes by Bruce Bruce
All the things that are worth doing, take time. ~ Mos Def
Tenuously Def quotes by Mos Def
I think that Mos Def is the best actor, but when you talk about rappers in films, I don't really think the quality of the acting is most important because most rappers are put in movies because of the personality and people want to see that. ~ Morris Chestnut
Tenuously Def quotes by Morris Chestnut
We blasted holes in the night until she bled sunshine ~ Mos Def
Tenuously Def quotes by Mos Def
The passage that he had found in the book had been riddled with ambiguities and contradictions only reserved for those most valiant in overriding their legalistic forbearance into a necessary frenzy that would allow them to suitably work up a case for one side or the other on how the Law, without the possibility of misinterpretation, states If ABC, then DEF - or for the sake of acknowledging the counterargument first as a courtroom tactic, the case might also be made that the Law states the antithesis of the aforementioned If ABC, then DEF, but gives allowance within reasonable parameters for a provisional XYZ to be granted in exceptional cases. And thus, it was a matter not so much of making one's case in a clear and logical sense, but one for the lawyers to battle out in the arena of pathos, as it was clearly the emotional pleas that could evoke a sense of sympathy in the courtroom and overturn otherwise painstaking endeavors at using the tools at hand to make pleas based upon incontrovertible facts. ~ Ashim Shanker
Tenuously Def quotes by Ashim Shanker
I've always loved music and I love the language, which is a huge reason why I'm part of theater. ~ Mos Def
Tenuously Def quotes by Mos Def
To me, playing an instrument and singing, all of these different things are just as natural to me as rhyming. ~ Mos Def
Tenuously Def quotes by Mos Def
I've always loved rhyming. I love language. ~ Mos Def
Tenuously Def quotes by Mos Def
The new moon rode high in the crown of the metropolis. Shinin', like Who on top of this? ~ Mos Def
Tenuously Def quotes by Mos Def
def leppard lyric from Rock of Ages: It's better to burn out than fade away. This is not a Curt Cobain quote. He was quoting them !!!!! ~ Victoria Danann
Tenuously Def quotes by Victoria Danann
Why did one straw break the camel's back?
Here's the secret:
The million other straws underneath it. ~ Mos Def
Tenuously Def quotes by Mos Def
It's difficult to really be an artist nowadays. People are just on another page. You have a society that needs you to say something, but they don't want to give you the environment to be able to be just a functioning, happy, normal person. It's like, the industry is at odds with you, the society is at odds with you. You start to live in this very confined box where it's like, It's "me" and "them." ~ Mos Def
Tenuously Def quotes by Mos Def
I'm just an artist and I'm doin' what I like to do. ~ Mos Def
Tenuously Def quotes by Mos Def
I don't dislike rappers or hip-hop or people who like it. I went to the Def Jam tour in Manchester in the '80s when rap was inspirational. Public Enemy were awesome. But it's all about status and bling now, and it doesn't say anything to me. ~ Noel Gallagher
Tenuously Def quotes by Noel Gallagher
Ten Best Song to Strip
1. Any hip-swiveling R&B fuckjam. This category includes The Greatest Stripping Song of All Time: "Remix to Ignition" by R. Kelly.

2. "Purple Rain" by Prince, but you have to be really theatrical about it. Arch your back like Prince himself is daubing body glitter on your abdomen. Most effective in nearly empty, pathos-ridden juice bars.

3. "Honky Tonk Woman" by the Rolling Stones. Insta-attitude. Makes even the clumsiest troglodyte strut like Anita Pallenberg. (However, the Troggs will make you look like even more of a troglodyte, so avoid if possible.)

4. "Pour Some Sugar on Me" by Def Leppard. The Lep's shouted choruses and relentless programmed drums prove ideal for chicks who can really stomp. (Coincidence: I once saw a stripper who, like Rick Allen, had only one arm.)

5. "Amber" by 311. This fluid stoner anthem is a favorite of midnight tokers at strip joints everywhere. Mellow enough that even the most shitfaced dancer can make it through the song and back to her Graffix bong without breaking a sweat. Pass the Fritos Scoops, dude.

6. "Miserable" by Lit, but mostly because Pamela Anderson is in the video, and she's like Jesus for strippers (blonde, plastic, capable of parlaying a broken nail into a domestic battery charge, damaged liver). Alos, you can't go wrong stripping to a song that opens with the line "You make me come."

7. "Back Door Man" by The Doors. Almost too eas ~ Diablo Cody
Tenuously Def quotes by Diablo Cody
Hip-hop is rock & roll. What the hell is Wu-Tang but Motorhead? ~ Mos Def
Tenuously Def quotes by Mos Def
The world has wanted me to speak differently than I speak. I speak like my mom. I speak like the whitest white dude. I speak like a "Def Comedy Jam" comedian doing an impression of a white guy. ~ Jordan Peele
Tenuously Def quotes by Jordan Peele
Why do I need ID to get ID?
If I had ID, I wouldn't need ID. ~ Mos Def
Tenuously Def quotes by Mos Def
Every time you ask yourself where hip-hop's going, ask yourself where you're going; how are you doing? ~ Mos Def
Tenuously Def quotes by Mos Def
I don't care about what brand you are, I'm concerned what type of man you are, what your principles and standards are. ~ Mos Def
Tenuously Def quotes by Mos Def
I have inherited two of the most important brands in hip-hop, Def Jam and Roc-A-Fella. Reid and Universal Music Group have given me the opportunity to manage the companies I have contributed to my whole career. I feel this is a giant step for me and the entire artist community. ~ Jay-Z
Tenuously Def quotes by Jay-Z
Me: It will get better, right? Eventually, it will get better.

Scarlett: I'm sorry I'm not the type to lower our discourse to emoji use since you totally deserve a smiley face right now. Yes, it will get better.

Me: Ha. It's just. Whatever. Sorry to keep whining.

Scarlett: That's what I'm here for. BTW, that email you forwarded? My guess: TOTALLY A SECRET ADMIRER.

Me: You've read too many books. I'm being set up. And stop YELLING AT ME.

Scarlett: No way. I didn't say he was a vampire. I said he was a secret admirer. Most def.

Me: Wanna take bets?

Scarlett: You should just know by now that I'm always right. It's my one magic power.

Me: What's mine?

Scarlett: TBD.

Me: Thanks a lot.

Scarlett: Kidding. You are strong. That's your power, girl.

Me: My arms are v. toned from stress-eating ALL the cookies. Hand to mouth. Repeat 323 times. Hard-core workout.

Scarlett: Seriously, for a second, J? Just because you're strong doesn't mean you shouldn't ask for help sometimes. Remember that. I'm here, ALWAYS, but you might want to take up that offer from someone local.

Me: Whatever. Ugh. Thanks, Dr. Phil. I miss you!

Scarlett: Miss you too! Go write back to SN. NOW. NOW. NOW. Now tell me the truth? Anyone at your school unusually pale? ~ Julie Buxbaum
Tenuously Def quotes by Julie Buxbaum
I don't want to waste anyone's time or money. I want to give people some truth and positive heart lift. ~ Mos Def
Tenuously Def quotes by Mos Def
Shit," Clutch said after a few minutes. "The high-def has totally ruined porn. Are those ingrown hairs? ~ Joanna Wylde
Tenuously Def quotes by Joanna Wylde
Record companies are not necessarily interested in you realizing your artistic dream. The bottom line is that they got to sell records. ~ Mos Def
Tenuously Def quotes by Mos Def
I'm a little different from the average dude because I'm on high-def TV now. ~ Ray Romano
Tenuously Def quotes by Ray Romano
Gods, the pamphlets asserted, were not supernatural beings, but tenuously living things, like ethereal plants, that evolved in concert with the human species. We were simply their medium - our brains and flesh the soil in which they sprouted and grew. ~ Robert Charles Wilson
Tenuously Def quotes by Robert Charles Wilson
That idea of peace and love toward humanity shouldn't be nationalistic or denominational. It should be a chief concern for all mankind. ~ Mos Def
Tenuously Def quotes by Mos Def
Hip-hop is the last true folk art. ~ Mos Def
Tenuously Def quotes by Mos Def
Justin Bieber is signed to Def Jam, and I don't believe in touching nothing that ain't mine. I want someone to give me the same respect - don't touch nothing that's mine. I still want what I want. But Justin Bieber is definitely a friend of a family. Me, Drake, Wayne. We rock with the little homie, so he a part of us in heart. ~ Birdman
Tenuously Def quotes by Birdman
I had an advantage because people would post me on blogs because I had co-signs from Kanye West, Def Jam, and G.O.O.D. Music. Everything I put out, the blogs would put up. When I realized that, I used that to my advantage and helped build my following on my own. ~ Big Sean
Tenuously Def quotes by Big Sean
I began to fear that Mos Def was being treated as a product, not a person, so I've been going by Yasiin since '99. At first it was just for friends and family, but now I'm declaring it openly. ~ Mos Def
Tenuously Def quotes by Mos Def
Good art provides people with a vocabulary about things they can't articulate. ~ Mos Def
Tenuously Def quotes by Mos Def
I been to many malls from state to state,But I've never been in, say, one this great.I hate to say, about the other shopping centers that's left,But the Albee Square Mall is the doo-doo-def! ~ Biz Markie
Tenuously Def quotes by Biz Markie
I met Mos Def around that time but I didn't hook up with him until I was about 17 or 18. ~ Talib Kweli
Tenuously Def quotes by Talib Kweli
It wouldn't be fair to cast aspersions on an entire cultural movement based on the actions of a few. To quote my grandfather, 'One bad apple don't spoil the whole bunch.' ~ Mos Def
Tenuously Def quotes by Mos Def
There's probably a bunch of Power Stripe floating through the Def Jam offices right now. ~ Method Man
Tenuously Def quotes by Method Man
I don't mind being black. I'm black out loud. It's more than the people that they are, it's the condition that they represent. ~ Mos Def
Tenuously Def quotes by Mos Def
Man, I smashed her like an Idaho Potato ~ Mos Def
