Las Vegas authorities have issued a warrant for the arrest of New York rapper Mos Def.
According to TMZ, the rapper/actor is being sought after on charges of felony robbery and malicious destruction of personal property. Professional photographer Volker Corell is alleging the Brooklyn-bred emcee is responsible for reacting violently upon having images taken of him at the Men’s Apparel and Garment Industry Convention (MAGIC) in Nevada back in August.
Corell, who was an official photographer for the event, claims Mos removed a camera from his neck and smashed it on to the ground before leaving the scene with the damaged parts. He has also reportedly attained a cut on his left hand following the rapper’s attack.
A rep for Mos was unavailable for comment at press time.

The project’s first single “Life in Marvelous Times” came out on Election Day as an iTunes exclusive.
