Following his untimely arrest in South Africa earlier this year for attempting to use falsified documents to travel, Yasiin Bey has been releasing music sporadically in 2016 which could mean a new album is on the horizon. Today, a new video surfaces of Yasiin Bey performing a brand new single with BADBADNOTGOOD during their recent tour stop in Capetown. An unlikely pairing, but as BBNG explains in an interview with 10and5, “We got an email from someone that works with him the first night we got in, asking if we’d be willing to perform a couple songs with him at our show,” the band said. “Of course we said yes, then the next night we went to meet up with him. After a couple rehearsals we figured out what to play, and ended up doing 6 songs. 3 by him, as well as two Rodriguez songs, and ‘Buggin Out’ as a tribute to Phife Dawg.” Watch the full performance above.
