I was as giddy as a school girl when I heard that Blackstar was making a new album. I played the first album on my discman till that shit cracked in half. Finally coming back from their 1998 WE ARE BLACK STAR, Yasiin Bey (Mos Def’s new name) and Talib Kweli are back at it and set to release their new mixtape Aretha sometime in the near future. They have already made some appearances on tv and have released a few songs. Let me tell you, they have lost absolutely not steam.
Here is a song they did for Colbert.

They have also offered a free download of one of my favorites I have heard, You Already Knew.
Look out for tour dates to be added, they have already started to hit the road.
