Fresh from producing the beat for Yasiin Bey‘s latest track, “The Light Is Not Afraid Of The Dark,” Kanye West teamed up with the artist formerly known as Mos Def again yesterday – this time in Paris – to perform the lead single from his Graduation LP, “Can’t Tell Me Nothing.”

Taking to the stage unannounced at Yasiin Bey’s gig on April 11 at La Bataclan in the French capital, Yeezy gave fans a unique rendition of his 2007 hit and was also accompanied by acclaimed jazz pianist and music producer, Robert Glasper. In footage Kanye can be seen getting the crowd hyped up alongside Yasiin Bey while dressed in his usual all black uniform – apart from an eye catching chain hanging around his neck.

Check out their jazz-infused rendition of “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” below.
