Yasiin Bey performs “N****s In Poorest” in Paris [Video]

Re-hashing The Throne‘s epic hit in quintessentially conscious fashion, Yasiin Bey (who we will always affectionately know as Mighty Mos Def) flew out to the French capital to perform his cover of “N****s In Paris”… in Paris.

Stopping by on Radio Nova, the emcee treated French airwaves to a live performance of his “N****s In Poorest” version, simply in a desk chair and with his trademark retro mic in hand. Fitting it would seem, as you’d have reason to call irony on a paid show for a song highlighting social hardship.

Just in case you were thinking Yasiin was taking shots at ‘Ye and Jay, Young Guru will tell you the trio are still cool.
