      Since the Mighty Mos Def reps Brooklyn and New York to the fullest, he’s not used to the paparazzi’s flashing cameras in his face, so he took matters into his own hands. In footage caught by a TMZ.com cameraman, Mos is seen trying to talk the photographer out of keeping his picture.

      “I’m not used to that, I’m from Brooklyn and I’m not for that,” Mos told the photog. “If someone put their hand in my face, I respond like someone is putting their hand in my face. You put you camera in my face and I don’t know you, and it has nothing to do with this town or what I do for a living, it’s a matter of respect. So I’m asking you man-to-man, please erase my photo because I don’t know you like that.”

      The courageous heavy-set photog flat out said “No.” Then one of Mos’ boys tried to be quick and grab the dudes camera, but he wasn’t letting go. Mos then jumped into the fracas for a moment before he realized that cameras were filming him and tried to explain himself.

      “I’m not trying to damage nothing or hurt him,” Mos explained. “I asked him nicely to erase my photo.”  CLICK HERE TO VIEW
