Updated | Madlib did a surprise show in Paris last week at Mellow Bar with Egon and Blackjoy. We announced it here just a few hours ahead of time. A bunch of people made it in and had a good time, while others didn’t make it in and left us messages not fit for publication. Big thanks to Edwige Hamben for the photos.

Last night in London…

Last night we announced a last-minute Madlib show in London at Dance Tunnel.

With support from One Handed Music’s Paul White, Mr Beatnick, Radio 1?s Benji B, and Now-Again’s Egon, an hour before the doors opened the queue stretched half-way down Kingsland Road. Those who did get in were treated by two impressive special guests: Madlib collaborator MF DOOM, and another collaborator of yet-to-be-released works, Mos Def. (Sorry. We’re suppose to call him Yasiin Bey.)

You can watch a Vine of Mos Def spitting over Madlib below, courtesy of Mr. Beatnick. Thanks also to Fact Mag for shouting out the show.
