Yasiin Bey, Kanye West & The Robert Glasper Experiment Live In Paris!

by Brian Gabriel

yasiinbey-kanye-west-paris

Yasiin Bey fka Mos Def brought out Kanye West during his epic live show with Robert Glasper Experiment at La Bataclan in Paris last Thursday, apparently just to watch people’s heads explode, Clayton Bigsby-style. Yasiin is a beast. Glasper is a monster. And the full RGE ensemble is a whole Monster Island full of bad-ass creators. So throwing Kanzilla into that already explosive mix was bound to cause a musical meltdown of historic proportions. As with just about anything worth mentioning that goes on France-side, MC*5 made it happen and our guy with the eye Mr. Mass was there to document everything for the history books (not to mention the coffee table books and the rhyme textbooks). We’ll save the dissertations for future rap scholars, though–right now just relive the moment via Massoud’s highlights reel (below) of the performance.

While many of New York was having lunch, those in the SoHo area got treated to a lunchtime improvised musical performance today by ?uestlove and fellow music maker Rahzel. The duo performed while atop a parking structure and against a backdrop of a 50-foot-tall by 52-foot-wide wall mural of ?uestlove in the background.

The event was held to show the spirit and importance of collaboration in music and to kickoff the Red Bull Music Academy– 34 nights of music, workshops and lectures to be held in New York City this spring. With ?uestlove on drums and Rahzel on the mic, the duo performed a 20-minute impromptu and unrehearsed set to more than 300 enthusiastic attendees. In the spirit of inspiration, collaboration and making new music — core themes of the Red Bull Music Academy — both artists played off each other by creating beats, throwing lyrics — all in celebration of things to come.

“With the musical landscape changing and evolving so rapidly these days, it’s no wonder that the Red Bull Music Academy chose a city that eats, lives and breathes music,” said  ?uestlove. “Each day, New York musicians are collaborating with new writers, new artists — all walks of life.”

On Feb. 28th, the Swedes will hold a Black Tie Rave charity event at New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom. The first round of tickets were auctioned off in December and with under a third of the tickets sold, $437,000 was raised for the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City and Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund in support of hurricane Sandy relief efforts.

Swedish House Mafia have just announced the second auction will take place on Feb. 1st at 10am EST at Ticketmaster. The auction will support Save the Children’s initiative to ensure the safety and well-being of all children in America, where nearly one in four lives in poverty. In the wake of the school massacre in Newtown, Connecticut on December 14th, the organization is calling for a National Commission on Children that will address the issues of violence, mental health and poverty.

Starting bid is $100.00 per ticket and fans can purchase a minimum of 2 tickets and maximum of 4 tickets. More info available at www.blacktieraave.com. In addition anyone on the guest list for the U.S. tour will be asked to donate and optional $10.00 at the door for Save The Children.

“During the process of planning the Black Tie Rave, the Newton tragedy happened and we decided that as we had already raised more money than we had hoped for, that we would add Save The Children to the list of charities who will benefit from this event. Their work helping children who have suffered violence of all kinds is incredible and it felt right to bring them into what fundraising efforts we can achieve through this tour,” said Swedish House Mafia.
