Brooklyn rapper/actor Mos Def will release his first album since 2004's 'The New Danger,' on Sept. 26. Dubbed 'True Magic,' the effort includes new tracks like 'The Undeniable' and 'There Is a Way.'

'True Magic' isn't the only new release from the prolific entertainer. Following the successful 24-second short film Mos created for Converse's Spring 2006 Brand Democracy ad campaign, he has his own Converse shoe coming out. The Chuck Taylor All Star Mid Music, based on the classic Chuck Taylor All Star sneaker, will be available Aug. 1 at both Foot Locker and the Converse Web site.

The sneaks will feature laser-etched pictures of the Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan skyline.
