Hip-Hop, Rap | Black Star – You Already Knew

Posted by on November 25, 2011

Mos Def & Talib Kweli (commonly known as Black Star, for the few that don’t know) have dropped their second track off their upcoming mixtape, Aretha. The mixtape is titled to pay homage to the great Aretha Franklin, whom Mos Def & Talib Kweli have credited to influence their illustrious careers.

I’ve also attached one of my favorite tracks from Black Star below. For those of you who haven’t listened to Mos Def & Talib Kweli you’ll appreciate this one.

Yet another track from Kanye on “G.O.O.D. Friday”. Is it just me, or do all these tracks sound half finished? Like it or not, I think Kanye is doing something really special right now. You’re seeing Kanye releasing track by track diligently, you’re seeing artists work together that would have never previously if it weren’t for Kanye, and you’re seeing the resurgence of Charlie Wilson’s career. This may be a time when we look back on Kanye’s career and say, this was his artistic peak.
