UPDATE: The high-res video of Kanye x Yasiin’s live rendition of “Can’t Tell Me Nothing”–along with highlights from the rest of Bey’s set with Robert Glasper Experiment and and a gallery of amazing photos from Mr. Mass–is now online. >>>Watch here, exclusively on Okayplayer.
During Yasiin Bey‘s show last night at La Bataclan in Paris, he was joined by the Robert Glasper Experiment as his backing band. If that wasn’t enough, Bey brought out Kanye West to perform “Can’t Tell Me Nothin.” Glasper and his crew are some of the most talented working musicians today so it’s a pleasure to hear them backing Yeezy. This comes right after we got the studio version of an older Kanye produced Mos Def track,“The Light is Not Afraid Of The Dark.” Get your ‘woah-ooaaaah’s ready and peep the video below, shot guerilla-style from the audience on a phone-o-matic camera set to ‘fuzzy’. Given Kanye’s super-celeb status it will be all over the internet in about 5 minutes and some seconds BUT this particular guerilla action went down in Paris which means only Okayplayer will have the oh-fficial photo and video coverage, courtesy of Mr. Mass (see his iconic shot of Yasiin above, from his last trip to the City of Lights) because he got France surrounded. Soon come!
