On Yasiin Bey Would Like You To Quit Calling Him Mos Def

[[Bey’s pants’ cuffs are perfectly hemmed so as never to reach below his ankles; in Islam, says the Prophet, admonishing the arrogance of anyone who would walk dragging their garments behind them.]]

Back in the day, pants that stopped above your ankles were known as "highwater" pants.

Just kidding! Look, the way things are going now, we need more brothers getting into an introspective mode...examining why they do what they do, the consequences, and so forth. I don't necessarily believe that a person needs to feel connected to a God, but he should feel connected to his neighbor, his family, his country and possibly the world.

In other words, nookahs need to stop killing each other at the drop of a hat. That's rage. Find calm. Stop shooting each other.
