Soundcrash are extremely proud to announce that Hip Hop royalty Yasiin Bey will be performing for the first and with 3 time Grammy Award winning producer Robert Glasper and his full live band.

 

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 has 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 and The Gorillaz amongst countless others, Mos Def has never been shy in sharing his genius with other artists to create something special.

Having been nominated for 6 grammys and won 3 Robert Glasper has cemented himself as a giant both as a solo artist and producer. He has writtedn and performed on albums by Mac Miller, Anderson Paak, Banks (remix), Big K.R.I.T., Bilal, Kendrick Lamar, Q-Tip and Talib Kweli. His live band will perfectly complement Jazz leaning hip hop of Mos Def.

After a string of sold out London shows from Mos Def the chance to catch this one off with Robert Glasper is definitely not one to miss out on. Make sure you grab yourself a ticket to the best hip hop show of 2018 before they’re gone!

“Robert Glasper heads down the fraught path of hip-hop jazz and gets it right… it feels like a blueprint forward.” – Rolling Stone
