Black Star Are Back

Back in ’98, Mos Def and Talib Kweli joined forces to release the classic album Mos Def And Talib Kweli Are Black Star. The illustrious duo of Black Star have come together once again (albeit with Mos Def changing his name to Yasiin Bey) for a new record in honour of Soul legend Aretha Franklin.

The album still doesn’t have a release date but they have graced us with some tasty new jams, ‘Fix It’ & ‘You Already Knew’. Black Star still sound like one of the strongest hip-hop alliances in the world and seem as though they never left us, which bodes well for the new album.
