Mos Def Bans N-Word On Set & In Film

Posted By on April 30, 2009

    Rapper slash actor Mos Def reportedly banned the use of the "N-Word" not only on the set but in his upcoming new R-rated movie "Next Day Air." Fellow actor Wood Harris recently talked about their decision to not use the word saying "It was something that was very important to us," Harris explained. "It was our way of making a statement that we can express ourselves without using the N-word. But it wasn't just in the movie that we banned the word. We also banned it on the set. No one could say it at all. At first it was difficult, but we really stayed on top of each other. By the end of … filming, I don't know if it was something that even came up. We just didn't say it, and had no desire to. I hope that other people will start trying to find new ways to express themselves as well."

    In related news, "Next Day Air" hits theaters on May 8th and co-stars Donald Faison and Mike Epps. Directed by Benny Boom (50 Cent "The Massacre", Ciara "Goodies") the new film follows two inept criminals as they are mistakenly delivered a package of cocaine.
