Half-a-Blackstar Yasiin Bey jumped on stage at a Hypnotic Brass Ensemble show in commemoration of what would’ve been Fela Kuti‘s 74th birthday last October 15. Yasiin sang parts of Kuti and the Africa ’70‘s Expensive Shit B-side (if you can even call it a B-side) “Water No Get Enemy” then went into some bars of his own from “New World Water.” Watch Jamaar J‘s footage of the show below, filmed at The Shrine Chicago.

What a good looking crowd…

… And any one that has been to a Mos Def gig will know about the humility and love
