Watch Livestream Of Yasiin Bey's Peformance At The Historic Apollo Theater In NYC
Yasiin Bey will be again hitting the stage at the historic Apollo Theater in Harlem, New York City. The whole thing will be live streamed via TIDAL. The show begins at 8PM ET. Yasiin Bey, along with journalist, artist, and producer Ferrari Sheppard, known together as Dec. 99th also released their self titled debut (and last?) project via TIDAL. Head here to listen to it. The project was initially scheduled to be released on Friday, December 9th. Better late than never. The project was produced by Sheppard and recorded in South Africa. Bey’s last album was 2009’s The Ecstatic, which was released under Bey’s previous name Mos Def. Dec. 99th, in the lead-up to the release of their project dropped the tracks “N.A.W.,” “Local Time,” “Tall Sleeves,” “Seaside Panic Room,” and the song “Hymn,” which didn’t make the album. News that Bey will be releasing two other projects, his final act as a musician (he’s retiring from the recording game), have also come out. First there’s the OMFGOD project with Mannie Fresh that was initially teased back in 2012 with a website and video of the pair working in the studio. Though the name OMFGODBKNOLA was teased the collaborative album’s tentative name has fittingly been changed to As Promised. Then there’s the mysterious project Negus In Natural Person. Both upcoming projects will be teased by Yasiin Bey at his upcoming performance at the The Apollo on December 21. Scroll down to peep Bey’s tour dates and stay tuned for those two other albums.
