Yasiin Bey or the artist formerly known as Mos Def has been MIA on the music front for awhile now, so it was good news to hear that he was dropping a new single this week. Teaming up with Kanye West on production, the track titled “The Light Is Not Afraid of the Dark” is a smooth, soulful listen that finds the NY emcee spitting some truth. This is definitely the Yasiin Bey that fans have been missing and it is refreshing to hear that his brief hiatus from the mainstream music game hasnt changed his thought-provoking and clever flow. It is not known whether this will be on a future product or just a random unreleased musical easter-egg, but take a look at the live performance above and lets us know you’re thoughts below.
