A man who requires no introduction, Yasiin Bey formerly known as Mos Def recently dropped by to share his Essentials with us at HYPEBEAST HQ. While Bey currently calls both Paris and Cape Town home, he is constantly on the move, holding with him a number of necessities he can’t live without. An Upper House tote bag ensures his belongings are stored safe in a stylish carrier, while Made in Paradise swim shorts prepare him for trips to the pool or beach. His eclectic yet tasteful style is illustrated through a Umit Benan hat and Agnès B. jacket along with a subtle Uniform Wares watch. His trusty microphone, Ruby, and a pair of AIAIAI TMA-1 Studio headphones ensures he is never without the tools needed to set up shop to record. Rounding things out are his love for Mentos and “yummy treats” to assist those long journeys, while a customized gas mask comments on recent shootings in Ferguson, Missouri.
Enjoy our latest Essentials installment and stay tuned for more.
