Yasiin Bey (aka Mos Def) Gears Up for Montreal Show
Published Jun 05, 2012Yasiin Bey generated plenty of excitement last year when he reunited with Black Star cohort Talib Kweli, but the rapper/actor also known as Mos Def will be performing solo when he makes his latest Canadian appearance later this month.
The show takes place in Montreal on June 15 at L'Olympia. Evidently folks are pretty excited about the show, as the organizers have even set up a website at MosDefMontreal.com. Tickets cost $42, and you can get more info on those here. Also, watch a brief video promoting the event below.
This show will cap off the Montreal International Hip-Hop Festival. According to HipHopCanada.com, this is Yasiin Bey's debut solo Montreal performance.
Bey is a notoriously elusive individual, and you may remember that he dropped out of a Toronto show with DOOM a couple of years ago. In other words, if you've been itching to see him live, you probably won't want to pass up this opportunity.
