Countdown to Bonnaroo: 24 Days – Artist of the Day: Black Star

13 May

When I saw Black Star on the lineup for Bonnaroo I couldn’t believe it.  We’re talking Mos Def and Talib Kweli, reunited and ready to drop some of the best beats of the festival. I’d had the chance to see Kweli once before but this is going to be something special.  Having released only one album, it was like a flash in the pan and now the duo are slated to finally come out with a new record together.  I can remember in high school cranking Mos Def & Talib Kweli are Black Star and having “Definition” on repeat; “1,2,3, Mos Def and Talib Kweli, we came to rock it on to the tip top, best alliance in hip hop, why oh.” Indeed that should reign supreme next month.  I mean we are talking like this is one of the top 10 shows not to miss at the festival this year.
