Long has mum been the word for Yasiin Bey (formerly Mos Def), who’s had his fair share of ups and downs in 2014. Fortunately, the wordsmith had a chance to speak his peace and update fans during a recent conversation with HYPETRAK in Hong Kong.
Bey promises that he’s hard at work on numerous projects, including the highly anticipated collaborative album with Mannie Fresh, which he revealed to be 80 percent complete. The Brooklyn native also discussed moving to Cape Town, South Africa.
Describing the move as “a soul connection,” among other things, Bey explained that he “sees a lot of opportunity” in his relocation.
