So I caught this article about Yasiin Bay [aka Might Mos Def]. It seems that during a Music Exchange conference [where he was a keynote speaker] he answered questions about his controversial attire. This comes at a time when many people in the hiphop community are increasingly alarmed about the trend of men wearing feminine clothing. According to Bey he is NOT wearing a skirt, he is wearing wrap from Ghana. Okay cool, I
guess… except, from what I can tell, Ghanaian men don’t wear “wraps” around their waist.
After some reading I found that Ghanaian men may however wear Kente cloth in a manner consistent with the included pictures. I’m definitely a fan of Yasiin Bey so I’m on the fence about this “wrap” thing until I can learn more.
