Mos Def, whose real name is Dante Terrell Smith, decided to go by the name Yasiin Bey to reflect his conversion to Islam. The name Yasiin is an Arabic name, and Bey is a title of respect in several cultures. In an interview he stated that he felt Mos Def was a name that he had outgrown, with Yasiin Bey representing a new phase in his life. It's not uncommon for artists to adopt different names throughout their careers to signify changes in their personal lives or artistic directions.
