Additional details

Since Beyʼs classic breakthrough albums -- Black Star (1998), a collaboration with Talib Kweli and Hi-Tek; and Black on Both Sides (1999), his solo debut -- the hip hop giant continues to be revered now more than ever. His chart-topping albums and collaborations of the past decade continue to draw attention, especially from critics and underground rap fans. Bey has worked with an impressive roster of diverse artists, from Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, and Kanye West, to vocalists like Jill Scott and Alicia Keys, to rock project Black Jack Johnson, to jazz star Robert Glasper, and many more. Also a renowned actor, Bey appeared in several films, including Academy Award- nominated Monsterʼs Ball, Golden Globe-winning Lackawanna Blues, and Emmy- winning Something the Lord Made. He even spent some time on Broadway, performing in the Pulitzer Prize-winning Topdog/Underdog.

Now, following up on his recent releases, Fix Up (with Talib Kweli) and Black Radio (with Robert Glasper), Bey makes an exclusive appearance at the recently revived Belasco, a gorgeous L.A. venue built in 1926. After a years-long, $12 million renovation, the venerable downtown landmark will host a rare performance from one of this generationʼs most popular and respected talents, Yasiin Bey (Mos Def).
