Yasiin Bey performs Mos Def - The Ecstatic
Plus Special Guests

Yasiin Bey comes to Manchester’s o2 Ritz for a one-off performance of the classic Mos Def album The Ecstatic as well as other classic Mos Def material.

Mos Def really doesn’t need any introduction: Exploding into public consciousness as part of Blackstar (with Talib Kweli) in 1998, it was Mos’ debut ‘Black On Both Sides’ a year later that rocketed the New York rapper to astronomical heights, propelled by universal acclaim for the LP, which continues to be held up as one of the genre’s greatest ever albums.

The near two decades since then have seen an unprecedented output of critically acclaimed work, both as a solo artist and fierce collaborator. Working closely with big hitters from across hip-hop including the likes of The Roots, De La Soul, Madlib, Common, DJ Shadow, Kanye West (signing to G.O.O.D Records for a spell) as well as musicians from outside of the rap sphere including Gil Scott Heron, Bobby Womack, The Gorillaz and Robert Glasper (as part of the Mos Def Big Band) amongst countless others, Mos Def has never been shy in sharing his genius with other artists to create something special.

Don’t miss one of rap’s true greats in what will be the most talked about hip-hop events ever.
