Yasiin Bey took an innovative approach to his "Bey Ye" set on Sunday at the Regent Theater in Los Angeles, performing the lyrics from his own songs over Kanye West beats. The idea isn't quite the stretch for Yasiin, who was once an artist on West's G.O.O.D. Music label. The two have been collaborating since The College Dropout, and Yasiin popped up on last year's Kids See Ghosts.
