Watch Yasiin Bey (Formerly Mos Def) Perform With The Brooklyn Philharmonic

    Last night Yasiin Bey, the artist formerly known as Mos Def, came home for a free concert in Brooklyn. Bey played a show in Restoration Park in his former neighborhood of Bedford-Stuyvesant with some major backup. The Brooklyn Philharmonic joined Bey for a rousing hip-hop/orchestral performance.

    One particularly unexpected track that Bey and friends busted out was “Hard In Da Paint” by Waka Flocka Flame. Check out a video of Bey and the band rehearsing that song over at The Urban Daily and watch live footage “Life In Marvelous Times” from 2009’s The Ecstatic below.
