“Nkiru Books" is a bookstore in Brooklyn that Mos Def, Hi-Tek, and Kweli own. I was supposed to shoot Talib and Mos together, but Mos was like four hours late, and Kweli had bounced by then. I just pulled Mos aside when he got there and took like three shots. Hopefully this is the picture people use to reference Mos 20 years from now.”
