Yasiin Bey took the stage in Montreal to deliver a stand-up comedy set rife with punchlines targeting Hip Hop’s biggest names.
“The male ego can be a very boring place,” Yasiin Bey says during his set. “I feel bad for Nicki Minaj. Damn she’s in the middle of these two rap niggas…I hope she call both of them and curse them out, cuz secretly she’s a better rapper than both of them.”
Bey’s claims that Nicki is better at rap then her work partner Drake and her boyfriend Meek Mill were greeted with laughter from the crowd.
Elsewhere in the performance, titled “Happy Birthday! Shut Up,” Yasiin Bey took some time to address Kanye West’s set at the Pan-Am games last month, which ended with the artist chucking his microphone in the air in apparent frustration.
“You had Kanye out at the Pan-Am games sweating and going hard as one of the athletes,” he said. “He threw that mic in the air so hard it never came down. I was talking to El-P from Run the Jewels the other day and he said it turned into a bird.”
This was Bey’s first stand-up set.
