Mos Def comes to Singapore

Hip hop heads, listen up.

Yasiin Bey might have ditched his stage name Mos Def, but he’s still the same rhyme-spitting machine and hip hop force of nature he’s always been. And he’s coming to Singapore.

Brooklyn, New York’s very own will be hitting up Singapore on 23 August to headline Summerdaze at the Hard Rock Hotel in Resorts World Sentosa. The rapper, armed with his bright-red vintage-style microphone and an arsenal of tunes, will be joined by DJs Neil Armstrong and Shortkut.

Styled as a poolside block party, the lineup also features homegrown talent like our very own Matteblacc crew DJ Jnr & Drem, female rapper Masia One and African-Australian rapper N’fa Jones.

And with any block party, it’ll be a chance to hang with people from the community, i.e. fellow hip hop lovers.

But the highlight is inevitably Bey, whose hip hop career has spawned both solo albums like his most recent ‘The Ecstatic’ (2009) and prolific work with Talib Kweli in the duo, Blackstar.

Signed to Kanye West's G.O.O.D music since 2010, Bey is remains a master of rhymes on stage
