Yasiin Bey "Float" (Muhammad Ali tribute) (video)
Published Oct 18, 2012Brooklyn rapper Yasiin Bey has been relatively quiet since releasing the excellent The Ecstatic in 2009. He's dropped tracks here and there, but a new album remains less than a dot on the horizon.
In the meantime, Bey has recorded a video for the latest installment in Louis Vuitton's "Greatest Words" series: an interpretation of Muhammad Ali's famous ""Float like a butterfly" poem, spoken from an empty, dimly-lit boxing ring. Watch below via Okayplayer. His two previous installments, "Dream" and "Word," are after "Float."
