Prior to his show last night with Talib Kweli in Paris at La Bataclan, Yasiin Bey dropped by Radio Nova for a live on the air segment in which he performed "Sunshine Screwface", a track produced by the late J Dilla . Bey (formerly Mos Def ) started mixing the song into live sets last fall, but to our knowledge has yet to properly distribute a studio version of the record. This performance at Nova is of fairly high quality though, and should suffice until an official release. If there ever is one.

If you haven't heard "Sunshine Screwface", take a few minutes out of your day and improve it. As always, Mos Yasiin Bey kills it. He also performed "N***** In Poorest", a take on Jay-Z and Kanye's "N***** In Paris" from Watch the Throne . You can find the latter performance here . via [ SoulCulture ] Sean Tags: Mos Def , Paris , sunshince screwface , the word is bond , Yasiin Bey
It's been ages since I've bumped anything from Mos Def/ Yasiin Bey this hard. The J Dilla beat + Bey's ridiculous flow make a killer combo. Bey recorded this at Nova Radio in Paris to promote his upcoming show with Talib Kweli at La Bataclan March 9th. For you hip-hop newbs out there, Yasiin Bey + Talib Kweli = Black Star. Educate yo'self. Watch: Yasiin Bey (Mos Def) - Sunshine Screwface (Prod. J Dilla)
During a recent promotional stop at Radio Nova in Paris, Yasiin Bey (your old friend Mos Def) debuted a brand new J Dilla-produced track entitled "Sunshine Screwface". Backed by glorious funk-inspired horns and sunny guitars, Bey unloads rhymes that focus more on bizarre, yet clever wordplay than his more recent biting satire . Watch the replay below (via Prefix ).
