Event Details

One of the most influential figures in hip hop culture, musician, actor and activist Yasiin Bey (FKA Mos Def) heads to Carriageworks for a two-night exploration of his back catalogue and artistic influences on Wednesday 12 and Thursday 13 June as part of the Vivid Music program.

Yasiin Bey performs MF DOOM

On night one, for the first time in Australia, Yasiin Bey will pay tribute to the late, great MC MF DOOM. MF DOOM was a highly influential and enigmatic figure in the world of hip-hop. Emerging from the underground scene in the late 1990s, he became renowned for his intricate rhymes, distinctive flow, and masked persona. Yasiin Bey has always admired the rhymes of Viktor Vaughan, AKA The Villain, King Gheedorah or simply DOOM. This is his tribute to his favourite songs from the catalogue.

Yasiin Bey The Ecstatic 15th Anniversary

On night two, Bey will celebrate the anniversary of his critically acclaimed seminal album The Ecstatic in a rare exploration into one of the most complex and singular voices in contemporary culture. Celebrated as a return to form with its eclectic incorporation of elements of hip-hop, jazz, soul, and world music as well as themes of politics and personal adversity, the production on the album is diverse and draws inspiration from global influences.
