Yasiin Bey // Salaams (Exclusive Performance)

Mos Def / Yasiin performing his latest piece “Salaams” at the 30 Years of Taqwa event in New York. Now this is a proper response to the recent Lowes controversy.

Goosebumps! Love this brother! As Salaamu Alaiakum. That’s the greeting Muslims give around the world. It means “May the the truest peace be upon you.” If we understand it though, it also means “The Peace is an obligation upon you”. Matter of fact, this greeting and its effect upon the early Hip Hop generation is why in Hip Hop, lot of folks greet and depart with “Peace”. - Brother Ali
