Brooklyn’s finest Yasiin Bey (also known as Mos Def) goes to Harlem for two “and Friends” at the famed Apollo Theatre. The last time I saw him was closing for Dave Chappelle at Radio City Music Hall a coupla years and if he is half as goo on Wednesday and Thursday, consider it a must see for the always at the very least interesting rapper. As for the friends, I don’t expect Yeez, and even so, dig this: “The Apollo Theater presents one of the final U.S. performances of one of hip hop’s most influential artists – yasiin bey (formerly known as Mos Def). This very special engagements follow bey’s announcement earlier this year of his retirement from the music business”
