Talib Kweli and Mos Def (now known as Yasiin Bey), also known as Black Star, have revealed that they are prepping to record a follow-up to their 1998 classic self-titled album. The duo hopes to record the project in Africa.
"It's in the ether," said Black smith Records CEO Corey Smyth. "We've had a few false starts in the past, but it just feels right this time."
The Black Star album helped solidify Kweli and Mos as two of the most gifted and insightful emcees in hip hop. After its release, they both focused on their burgeoning solo careers. While they still would perform as Black Star on occasion, there was no official 'Black Star' music recorded.
