Somewhere you should go… Yasiin Bey aka Mos Def at Shepherd’s Bush Empire

On the musical front, much hasn’t been heard from the artist formerly known as Mos Def.  He made headlines in the summer after a video of him demonstrating the controversial force-feeding procedures used on hunger-striking detainees at Guantánamo Bay went viral – and if you’re hip to all things sartorial, you might have see him hanging out with the Art Comes First collective on Instagram a few months back. Yet for all his forays into activism and fashion, he doesn’t appear to be hanging up the mike just yet – and  Thursday’s show at Shepherd’s Bush Empire should be an enjoyable retrospective of one of the most creative hip-hop artists of the last 20 years. Mind you, he’s known to throw in a few Marmite-ish curve balls judging from previous shows (these arty types, eh?), so it’ll be interesting to see how it all goes down tomorrow night – but we’re hoping for nothing less than the best.
