Yasiin Bey made a very important announcement on Facebook and then deleted it. According to the video, Bey aka Mos Def stated that he was officially retiring and that he was cancelling his string of European show dates. He was originally slated to perform in the UK, including one at London's O2 as well as shows in Germany, Denmark, and Sweden.

He then deleted the video. "I do have one or two films that I made commitments to earlier, before I announced my retirement. Apart from that, I’m moving onto other things, still being creative. You know, definitely fashion, textiles, and just art. Whatever I can create that’s beautiful and useful, that’s what I wanna do," he said.
