Mos Def will be performing a full live show as part of Beat Horizon at O2 Victoria Warehouse.

Yasiin Bey, the artist previously known as Mos Def really doesn’t need any introduction: Exploding into public consciousness as part of Blackstar (with Talib Kweli) in 1998, it was Mos’ debut ‘Black On Both Sides’ a year later that rocketed the New York rapper to astronomical heights, propelled by universal acclaim for the LP, which continues to be held up as one of the genre’s greatest ever albums.

The near two decades since then has seen an unprecedented output of critically acclaimed work, both as a solo artist and fierce collaborator.  Working closely with big hitters from across hip-hop including the likes of The RootsDe La SoulMadlibCommonDJ ShadowKanye West (signing to G.O.O.D Records for a spell) as well as musicians from outside of the rap sphere including Gil Scott Heron, Bobby Womack and The Gorillaz amongst countless others, Mos Def has never been shy in sharing his genius with other artists to create something special.
