Mos Def is officially a wanted man — and not just because he’s a rapper, actor, and buddies with avant-garde director Michel Gondry (though, that’s pretty awesome). It seems while in Las Vegas for August’s fashion trade convention MAGIC, Mos Def (born Dante Smith) got into an altercation with photographer Volker Corell, who claims the star assaulted him and threw his camera to the ground before walking away with it [via allhiphop.com].

A warrant has been issued for the rapper’s arrest on charges of felony robbery and malicious destruction of property.

But he’s certainly not the first celeb to be accused of violence against photogs, and as of yesterday afternoon, Amy Winehouse made sure he wasn’t the last.

Mos Def’s fourth solo record, The Ecstatic, is due out on February 10.
