Yasiin Bey (formerly Mos Def) has always been known as one of hip hop’s most conscience rappers, always willing to use his rhythmic prose to challenge the status quote.

The Guardian reports that the rapper reenacted the procedure during a four-minute film, which was made by human rights group, “Reprieve,” and Bafta award-winning director, Asif Kapadia.

Of the 166 prisoners held at the U.S. Navy base in Guantanamo, more than half of them have been participating in a hunger strike that has been going on for months, according to the Washington Post. While lawyers for the prisoners claim the procedure amounts to torture, the U.S. Justice Department says it keeps them from starving to death.
