Black Star / Mos Def & Talib Kweli are Black Star

5 mics, 5 fists, 5 stars, two thumbs up, all that stuff. Take your finger off the fast forward button, the Black Star ride is gonna take you on a musical journey... Blackstar; a group comprised of what many say to be the Dynamic Duo of 90s Hip-Hop. This album is one that makes you feel good to be a b-boy. With their combination of soulful hooks and conscious lyrics, Mos Def and Talib Kweli went beyond the call of duty when creating what we consider to be one of the best Hip-Hop albums of the 90s that will carry its weight well into the new Millennium. The album is one that you can listen to while you are melanating or driving long distances -- it is definitely a good travel album. Mos Def and Talib Kweli have earned the right to have this album considered a classic.
