Minutes ago, Yasiin Bey (formerly Mos Def) finished his amazing performance at The Metro in Chicago, IL. With opening performances from Chicago’s Ty Money, Abel Black, and a very special performance from G.O.O.D. Music‘s Malik Yusef, Chicago got more than its money’s worth even before Yasiin Bey hit the stage for the sold-out crowd. Performing a catalog of his best and critically acclaimed tracks, Bey kept the Windy City in awe all night.
Check out our photos below, as we sent our photographer Dan Garcia to capture some of the night’s best moments.
Yasiin Bey (formerly Mos Def) has been a fan of legendary underground rapper MF Doom for quite sometime. And while we haven’t heard a lot of new music from Bey in the past few years, we now have 7 new tracks from Mos Def, where he raps over MF Doom songs. In the new remix series, titled BeyonDoom, Bey raps over ‘Beef Rap’. ‘Accordion’, ‘Curls’, ‘Stranger Ways’ and more.
After over a week of performances by Dave Chappelle at New York’s Radio City Music Hall, full with special music guests including Kanye West, The Roots and others, Chappelle closed his performances with a very special appearance by Yassin Bey, formerly known as rapper Mos Def.
