Yasiin Bey Set For ‘Black On Both Sides’ 20th Anniversary Concert In NYC

The emcee formerly known as Mos Def will perform the body of work in its entirety.

(AllHipHop News) “Ms. Fat Booty,” “Umi Says,” and “Mathematics” are some of the most revered tunes in Yasiin Bey’s catalog. All three tracks appear on the same album.

The Brooklyn-bred spitter, then known as Mos Def, dropped his debut solo studio LP Black on Both Sides in 1999. The project is certified Gold by the RIAA and widely recognized as a Hip Hop classic.

Bey is set to perform the entire Rawkus release at the Brooklyn Steel on Sunday, November 3. Bronx rap duo Camp Lo is on the “Black On Both Sides 20th Anniversary Concert” bill as well.

Black on Both Sides included contributions from Busta Rhymes, Q-Tip, and Talib Kweli. One year before that project hit stores, Mos and Kweli teamed up for the equally well-received Black Star album.
