“This is not an expression of fear, this is just to make things clear”

In a lengthy new voicemail message left for Kanye West, Yasiin Bey spits a freestyle called “No More Parties in SA,” (inspired by Kanye’s latest single), explains his side of his recent arrest in South Africa and announces his retirement from music and film “effective immediately.” Bey explains that he believes he did nothing wrong in presenting a ‘World Passport’ while trying to leave South Africa last week and states that this particular document is accepted all over the world and has been for several year. He also goes on to say that he believes the entire incident and his continued detention are politically motivated and reasserts his unconditional innocence. Finally, he states that he’ll be dropping one more album, his last, before closing the call out with some more bars.

He has since overstayed his visa and now may be unable to return to the country for five years. Also detained were unidentified members of his family.

Ski Beatz Apologizes to Yasiin Bey

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2015

Last week Rap fans the world over were pleasantly surprised when they woke up to the release of a new track from the artist formerly known as Mos Def called “Sensei On The Block.” The Ski Beatz produced cut was an instant hit with fans but the fact that it was released under Yasiin’s old rap moniker seemed odd. This was a name the artist had made it very clear he was leaving in the past and to suddenly return to it at this stage of his career didn’t seem inline with the way we’ve known him to move.

Shortly after the track showed up on the web, Mr. Bey issued a video statement denouncing the release of the track under his old name, urged fans not to support it and took the “internet” to task for spreading rumors, or something. Which, ok, fair enough. Clearly somebody fucked up by putting the track out under the wrong name and he has a right to be mad about that. Also, the internet in general sucks and misreports and skews half of the shit it puts out everyday. But this track was for sale on iTunes and was being pushed by Ski, a longtime friend and frequent collaborator of Bey.

It really wasn’t a stretch for most websites to assume this was a sanctioned release that was supported by Yasiin. In retrospect, that obviously wasn’t the case. In a new video, Ski Beatz apologizes to his friend for “jumping the gun” and mislabeling the track without his approval. So I guess that is that. The real shocker here is that “Sensei On The Block” was recorded in 2010!

Watch the statement from Bey below.

Yasiin Bey – Basquiat Ghostwriter

yasiin-basquiat

New music from Mr. Bey is a rare occurence these days, but every so often he comes through with something to further cement his legacy. Inspired by the art and words of Jean-Michel Basquiat, and the epidemic of police brutality and social injustice in 2015, he delivers “Basquiat Ghostwriter.”

No rap circuses. A Country Called Earth. Free the land. Love and respect to the Basquiat family and Mr. W.F. Flame. Let us be reminded of Sandra bland, Fegurson, Baltimore, and all the injustice of the world, as well as the beauty. Respect to the family of Sean Price and Brooklyn, from which I and Jean-Michel are from. Eternal love to my city. God bless the soul and keeping living, even when we die, we wont stay dead.Lyrics by Yasiin Bey, Music by Jean-Michel Basquiat’s band Gray, off of their album Shades Of, originally recorded between 1979-1981. Lyrics taken from Jean-Michel’s paintings, graffiti and notebook sketches. Make peace and be grateful. L T P F J – Yasiin Bey
