Blackstar aka Talib Kweli & Mos Def New Single

For those of you familiar with the “Sound Bombing” series by Rawkus Records during the 1990’s get ready for the rebirth of Blackstar. Recently presented on the Cobert Report TV show, we now present to you the official single “Fix Up” by Talib Kweli and Mos Def aka Yasiin Bey, released in 2011 as they reignite the duo Blackstar. The lyrical flow is reminiscent the show-off style defined by allot of emcees from the Rawkus era which culminated with the Rawkus 50 releases. These two artists helped to define hip-hop history!

Talib and Mos have not only managed to keep it real with their music, but they have been able to transcend commercial barriers and break into the mainstream music industry in a way we can all be proud of. Topics in their music have ranged from political, to community, to god and back to the streets to tie it all together in a real-world way. The discography’s under these two emcees is immense as well as historical, their songs are soulful and musical and most certainly had something to do with today’s complex musical canvas displayed by modern hip-hop music! This modern hip-hop sound is embodied by producers such as Madlid who produced this single as well as 9th Wonder, Boonie Mayfield and the late great J. Dilla, to name only a few. Check out the track courtesy of BamaLoveSoul, it’s dope hip-hop music!
