Yasiin Bey formerly known as Mos Def is one of hip-hop's best-kept secrets to casual fans of the culture. Even though he's created a lane for himself in the realm of major motion pictures, the importance and impact of his music goes overlooked by many. From teaming up with Talib Kweli to form Black Star to his masterpiece of a debut album, Black on Both Sides, to his latest solo effort that was released almost a decade ago in The Ecstatic, Yasiin Bey has classic bodies of work under his belt but is hardly mentioned with the usual hip-hop greats and legends.
However, in the eyes of hip-hop purists, Yasiin Bey easily a candidate for the top ten greatest emcees to ever pick up a mic. Now, Bey is preparing a California-based two-date tour where he will be rhyming exclusively over Madlib beats (Yasiin Bey x Madlib: BEYLIBERATOR) as well as the musical sounds of the notorious J Dilla (Yasiin Bey x J Dilla: BEYONDILLA) who is no longer with us. Listed below are both dates and ticket information for Yasiin Bey's BEYONDILLA x BEYLIBERATOR Tour:
