Not every rapper can pull off a show with an orchestra, but Yasiin Bey (formerly Mos Def) is not every rapper. He's always pushed into some interesting creative zones with his art, and last night he did it again with a show at Restoration Park in his Brooklyn stomping grounds. Mos was joined by the Brooklyn Philharmonic for a dramatic take on his music. Watch him perform “Life In Marvelous Times” above.
