Yasiin Bey has been popping up all over Montreal this past month. It all started with an appearance at Dave Chappelle's Just For Laughs warehouse party, continued with a surprise opening set at Run The Jewels' Club Soda show, and concluding with multiple appearances at the city's Osheaga festival (including coming out as a special guest during both Kendrick Lamar and Nas' respective sets). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fn2anUw0egk

As if all this commotion in the city wasn't enough from the rapper, it looks as if he is not quite finished yet. Today, Montreal's Phi Centre venue announced "Happy Birthday! Shut Up.", the debut comedy performance from Bey, the artist formally known as Mos Def.

For only $20, attendees will be treated to not only the comedy stylings of the witty and forever conscious Bey but will also hear the musical stylings of the city's own Kaytranada.

Tickets for the event go on-sale tomorrow at 10am. Click here to learn more about "Happy Birthday! Shut Up."
