Watch: Yasiin Bey Returns To America For Surprise Performance At Dave Chappelle’s Radio City Show
1, 2, 3, it’s Mos Def and Talib Kweli! Dave Chappelle capped off his Radio City run in a big way. After kicking off his New York shows with a surprise performance from Kanye West, the comic managed to get Yasiin Bey back on American soil for a special set with his Black Star partner Talib Kweli.
Last month, Yasiin Bey had to cancel his upcoming U.S. tour due to “legal issues“, prompting whispers that he had opted for South African citizenship but according to Complex, a South African newspaper says that he was never banned but instead experienced a scheduling conflict in tour dates.
Regardless, his impromptu homecoming show was well worth the crowd’s dollars as Talib and Mos performed their catalog’s finest including “Definition,” “Redefinition” and “History,” and a cover of Notorious B.I.G.’s “Juicy.” Peep the Instagram recap below.
