Yasiin Bey, formerly known as Mos Def, will treat London to a special performance on June 11. The Brooklyn native will rap over nothing but J Dilla beats for the entire performance, in a celebration of one of the most important hip-hop producers of all time. Bey's work with Dilla spans multiple songs and albums but the two are united in a commitment to bringing out the soul of hip-hop in their music. Bey will no doubt perform some of his classic collaborations with Dilla. For those in London available to catch the show, tickets are available here.
