Mos Def & Talib Kweli Are Black Star

Image Hosted by

It's funky Friday, and to help you start your weekend right here is a delicious slab of warmth and postivity from Black Star, AKA Mos Def and Talib Kweli. Taken from their 1998 LP, K.O.S. (Determination) is a stand-out track on an album full of them. It's a slow-jam built around some simple beats, bass and splashes of smooth Rhodes keys, and also features the prominent vocals of Vinia Mojica, whose smooth-like-butter voice is the perfect counterpoint to Mos Def and Talib's raps about self determination. I would love to hear another Black Star record someday...
