It’s been almost 20 years since Yasiin Bey, previously known as Mos Def, put out his debut solo album Black on Both Sides. First released on October 12, 1999, by Rawkus and Priority Records, the project was a groundbreaking debut for the rapper as the album was met with critical acclaim due to its heavy focus on live instrumentation and conscious lyrics. In honor of its legacy, Yasiin Bey will be performing the album in its entirety for its 20th anniversary.

The album clocks in at approximately one hour and 10 minutes, with 17 tracks that feature the likes of Talib Kweli, Busta Rhymes, Vinia Mojica and Q-Tip. Every single track on the LP will be performed, including the classics “Ms. Fat Booty” and “Mathematics,” at New York’s Brooklyn Steel and will be opened by Camp Lo. The show just so happens to be scheduled a week before Yasiin’s set at Tyler, the Creator‘s Camp Flog Gnaw 2019, which will see a bevy of other big names taking to stage.

Yasiin Bey’s 20th-anniversary concert for Black on Both Sides is set to take place on November 3 with tickets to go on sale at 10 am EST, September 13 at axs.com.

Elsewhere, Mahalia & Ella Mai sets a car ablaze in new visuals for “What You Did.”
