Here’s a compilation of hip-hop artist Mos Def explaining to Bill Maher’s audience what his political views are. Not only does he question the attacks of Sept. 11, 2011, he goes on to say he doesn’t believe mankind has landed on the moon, but adds that he totally believes in big foot, and that OJ didn’t do it.

Behind all the comedy, he reveals the raw perspective of what it’s like to be black in America; a point that was aided by Dr. Cornell West, a Princeton professor and acclaimed black intellectual.

This video is from HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, first broadcast in Sept. 2007.
