Like André 3000 and Kanye West, Yassin Bey AKA Mos Def is one of the more sartorially inclined musicians in today’s hip-hop scene. Now as an activist, actor, poet and much more, many have wondered when or if he will try his hand at the relentless world of fashion design, like his aforementioned rap cohorts. That day seems to finally be upon us, as with the accompanying video we are offered a brief introduction to Bey’s newly formed creative outlet, Fellowship Mission. A design collaboration with friends including retail owner Chris Gibbs of Union, Fellowship Mission currently has no real direction, but to bring Bey’s awesome innovations to life. In conjunction with Weareblind TV, the Brooklyn-bred artist travels to Paris to likely gain some inspiration for his newly formed band of creative minds, checking out a traveling trade show featuring Sanders & Sanders Shoes and visvim. Again, not much is known for the future of Fellowship Mission, but there have been news circulating the blogosphere that the first release will be an oil-based fragrance named Harun -No.7-.
