For the second time this year, Yasiin Bey has announced his retirement from music – stating in a now deleted Facebook Live: “I’m retiring this year, for real.”

The rapper, formerly known as Mos Def, said he’ll continue to be active in “fashion, textiles, and just art. Whatever I can create that’s beautiful and useful, that’s what I want to do.”
