Ready to shatter the hip-hop community through his third solo album "Tru3 Magic", Mos Def appears to be prepared enough to mark his comeback into music industry for year 2007 after a two-year hiatus while maintaining his career in Hollywood. As a start, the talented rapper willingly sets to appear alongside Donald Trump on NBC's "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" taped on January 9 and aired on the next day before taking the stage of Lincoln Center's The Allen Room on date 17 as part of American Songbook series. On the big screen, it is expected that his two vehicles of "Toussaint" and "Be Kind Rewind" can make their way to the cinemas somewhere during the year so that fans are able to once again cherish his natural knack in acting which has already been recognized by moviegoers and critics alike.
