Watch Yasiin Bey Perform New Music at Art Basel

This past weekend in Miami, Yasiin Bey announced that he has two new albums on deck that he will be premiering during his upcoming performance at The Apollo Theater on December 21st. Speaking with Miss Info on Public School NYC’s WNL Radio broadcast, Bey revealed the impending release of As Promised, his long-awaited collaboration with Mannie Fresh, plus another new project called Negus in Natural Person.
These are both in addition to the Dec 99th project with Ferrari Sheppard which will arrive this Friday on TIDAL. Additionally, Bey treated the crowd at the ‘In Appreciation Of Lyricism’ event presented by Boiler Room and Saul Williams to live performances of some new tracks. The joint he does in the clip above sounds especially ridiculous. Below, watch footage of him performing a politically charged new song called “No Time To Pretend”. The audio on both is excellent.

He runs through the lyrics acapella before launching into a full performance.

Yassin has said that his performances at the Apollo and the Kennedy Center in Washington later this month will be his final shows, and presumably these projects will be his final albums.
