Mos Def (Yasiin Bey) brings live painter, lecture to Denver in NovemberBy Ru Johnson | July 24th, 2013 | No Comments »
On Nov. 15, the Brooklyn rapper will be joined by live painter Joshua Bua for a lecture and demonstration and performances by The ReMINDers. The show will take place in both the ballroom at Cervante’s and The Other Side.
Bey has been in the news as of late more because of his radical politics than his music. Earlier in the month (and at the onset of Muslim holy month Ramadan), the rapper voluntarily underwent force-feeding to protest treatment of Guantánamo detainees
Here’s to hoping his Denver show doesn’t include any force-feeding.
