Mos Def -- Mos Wanted

11/5/2008 7:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Vegas police are on the lookout for rapper Mos Def over an alleged attack of a fashion event photographer in August.

Def -- real name Dante Terrell Smith -- faces charges of felony robbery and malicious destruction of private property and a warrant has been issued for his arrest.

Volker Corell -- an official photog for the Men's Apparel and Garment Industry Convention (MAGIC) in Las Vegas -- claims Def flipped out on him while he was taking photos of attendees at the event. Mos allegedly ripped Volker's camera off his neck, smashed it to the ground and then took off with the busted equipment.

Corell claims to have suffered a cut on his left hand during the alleged attack.

Def has a history of hating paparazzi, but Corell was a credentialed snapper for the event ... and get this: He says he didn't even know who Mos was until after the alleged attack.

What else is new? TV and newspapers are full of this crap. Count it as another crime committed by a minority. That's not racist, that's a fact. There, I said it politically correct, not the way I really wanted to.

This isn't the forum to post political comments, I don't know why someone has to connect Obamas' name with something this lame. He is another so-so rapper getting busted for acting big and bad in public. I suppose they have to get attention
some way once thier time in the spotlight fades away.

barry Gordy is genius    

If the allegations were correct, MOS would not have a felony if he didn't confiscate and flee with someone else's belongs. I saw PLANET ASIA there too! Must've been a big event in Vegas.

To all the bloggers, keep it clean. To the blogger, maggot #13, you're doing too much.
