Yasiin Bey To Cover J Dilla Classics At London Show Next Month
Yasiin Bey -- or, the artist formerly known as Mos Def-- shook the world by its hind legs last month when he covered selections from the mighty MF DOOM's catalogue live and direct from an undisclosed Parisian bunker. Today, he's announced that he'll be giving the tributary treatment to yet another powerhouse producer's repertoire, taking the stage at London's The O2 on June 11th to have his hand with J Dilla's virtually immeasurable catalogue. If the performance, in any shape or form, resembles what Black Dante did to DOOM, we'll all be in for an audiovisual bomb of Dilla-fied heat, dropped by one of his closest friends and creative kin. Tickets go on sale today via Soundclash, so be sure to bust out that wallet in a hurry, as they certainly won't last long. The performance will come as a quick follow-up to his stunning Bay Area takeover last week, which you can relive in our exclusive photo gallery, for free ninety nine. London, get ready for some bonafide greatness to feed the donut lover in you. Hit the link below to grab your ticket today.
