Let’s be clear: Yasiin Bey is an international man of mystery. And as such his movements are sometimes difficult to track, let alone predict (let’s just say there’s a reason his latest appearances have been released under the umbrella of A Country Called Earth). But Okayplayer has just received word that the artist formerly known as Mos Def has been spotted in London–and is rumored to be working on a surprise UK show that involves the support of Peanut Butter Wolf, DJ Yoda and Breakbeat Lou. Details are sketchy and even some of the slim info that’s been shared with us is both secret and unconfirmed. The only solid Yasiin-intelligence we have to go off here is this mysterious audio recording (which may or may not self-destruct 30 seconds after you press play) Listen below for yourself and draw your own conclusions but let’s just say if this anonymous tip-off pays out…the infamously gloomy English weather might just be about to get a little less dismal. Nahmean?
