Mos Def and Talib Kweli, a.k.a. Black Star are performing tonight at The Fillmore in Miami Beach! I’ve never seen Black Star perform live and I’m SO excited! I saw Mos at Rock The Bells 2008 here in Miami and I’ve only seen Kweli DJ live but, of course, they both killed it. This amazing show is being presented by Rock The Bells and Guerilla Union. I’m loving all of these Exclusive Live Performances being thrown by the hip-hop music festival peeps.
Not familiar with Black Star?? Check out what Miami New Times has to say about the duo, plus a video or two. Get acquainted, and get your tickets! Talib is going to be spinning at The W’s Wall nightclub afterward, so tonight is going to be fun to say the least!
The duo behind this record — Black Star, consisting obviously enough of Brooklyn MCs Mos Def and Talib Kweli — took its core concepts (and its name) from Marcus Garvey, the legendary Jamaican newspaperman, Black Nationalist, and founder of the Universal Negro Improvement Association, whose Black Star shipping line was supposed to serve as a shuttle back to Africa for the descendants of slaves still stranded in Jamaica, the United States, and the rest of the Americas.
