Yasiin Bey (formerly Mos Def) has moved to South Africa.

Yasiin Bey revealed that he’s a permanent resident of South Africa.
Bey says he loves the energy the people and city gives him on a daily basis.
“Last year May, I came [to Cape Town] and I said I’m not leaving. I’m staying. It’s a beautiful place,” he explained. “It has the ocean, mountain, botanical gardens and beautiful people.”
“There are some beautiful places in America. I love Brooklyn,” he added. “New York City needs to thank Brooklyn every day just for existing. That’s how I feel about it. It was a hard thing to leave home. But I’m glad I did.”
