Black Star member Talib Kweli talks about the possibility of reuniting with Mos Def for a brand new Black Star album.
Although Talib Kweli and Mos Def have both gone on to have successful solo careers, fans have long hoped for the two to reunite as the legendary hip hop duo Black Star.
Seeing that the group hasn’t put out an album in over 15 years, it’s almost wishful thinking to think the two would join forces for another album in 2013, but Talib Kweli recently told Peter Rosenberg and the team at The Hot 97 Morning Show that it is a “toss up.”
“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.”
The two haven’t recorded an album together since 1998, but Talib and Mos were able to team up to perform at the Rock Bells tour together. Talib Kweli is also working on the release of his solo album ‘Prisoner of Conscious.’
