Talib Kweli Talks Black Star Reunion

Posted By on January 17, 2013

Hip Hop legend Talib Kweli took the time to address questions concerning a Black Star Reunion and a follow up album to their 1998 Album. Recently, when Talib Kweli sat down with Peter Rosenberg and the Hot 97 Morning for an interview, the topic of a Black Star reunion album came up. This is nothing new for Kweli, who is considered one of the purest lyricist in Hip Hop. Hip Hop fans have been anxiously awaiting a follow up album to the Hip Hop duos, whose other member is the famed lyricist Mos Def, 1998 Self-titled LP.

Although the two were able to collaborate on a number of joints while they were on the Rock The Bells Tour, Kweli says that he can’t speak with any certainty as to the probability of a new Black Star project. According to Kweli, it was only supposed to be that one album and the two were supposed to pursue their solo careers.

“It’s a toss-up. But you know what, the great thing about Black Star is it was never dependent on the output of the album. It was like a lighting in a bottle thing, our intention was to do that one album and then do our solo careers, but people loved that album.”

Although there is uncertainty about the reunion of these two incomparable emcees, it has not inhibited them from working together. They consistently perform together at all types of venues.
