Mos Def Throws Guerrilla Concert Outside VMAs, Gets Arrested

Mos Def pulled the most rock & roll move of anybody last night at the VMAs, but it didn't make it onto the broadcast. Def rolled up to Radio City Music Hall on the back of a flatbed truck and started performing his politically charged tune "Katrina Clap," — a condemnation of the Bush administration's snail's-pace response to hurricane Katrina. The police weren't having any of it, and arrested him mid-show, along with several members of his entourage. The rapper/actor was released early this morning the fracas may have just begun: Members of Def's posse say they have video recordings of the entire drama.
