Yasiin Bey, f.k.a. Mos Def, is playing the Apollo Theater in Harlem tonight as part of a string of "final" dates leading up to his previously announced retirement. TIDAL is livestreaming the show, his second date at the historic venue, starting at 8 p.m. ET.
Last night, Bey performed at the first of those dates, with help from friends and collaborators Pharoahe Monch and Slick Rick. Mos was joined onstage by Rick for their Madlib-produced The Ecstatic collab, "Auditorium." The show also included the live debut for a handful of new songs from December 99th, his collaborative effort with writer and musician Ferrari Sheppard.
Watch the full performance from last night below and stream the second show via TIDAL here.
