Yasiin Bey pka Mos Def in Hong Kong

No Comment

We recently made a trip with one of hip hop’s greatest MCs to Hong Kong and Macau for a special performance. Yasiin Bey (pka Mos Def) is considered one of hip hop’s top artists of all time while his screen work has established him as one of a handful of rappers who have garnered critical acclaim for their acting work.

Yasiin is a very stylish artist; there’s not many who can compare to his style. Bey’s personal take on classic style leaves him in a class all by himself with his fresh and original approach to mixing and matching different textiles and patterns. Here we see Yasiin on the streets of Hong Kong looking for the latest fashions.

After a day of shopping in the streets of Hong Kong, it was showtime. We jumped on a ferry and made our way to the city of Macau to the world famous Club Cubic at City of Dreams for what would be a unique experience of art and music. Not only was Yasiin performing, but an exclusive preview of Ron English x Made by Monsters “Telegrinnies” toy sculptures was on display as an art installation.

Now there aren’t too many people that make it to Macau to perform from the USA, but when you are a legend you get those types of invites. The club was packed and everybody had a great time waiting to see the special performance.

It was time for the main event, the moment everyone was waiting for. Mos Def hit the stage performing all his hip hop classics and the crowd went crazy. It was amazing to see the people chanting the words to all his songs, they were truly fans of his work.
