Black Star are reuniting for a short tour in Australia.
It’s now been 17 years since Black Star, the duo of Mos Def, now known as Yasiin Bey, and Talib Kweli, released their one and only album, Mos Def & Talib Kweli Are Black Star. Though Bey and Kweli have each been busy with their solo careers, it has just been announced that Black Star will reunite for a tour in Australia and New Zealand.
This doesn’t do too much for us in the Western Hemisphere, so hopefully the short-lived reunion tour is a prelude for more to come. The world could certainly use another Black Star album.

10/22/15: Brisbane, Australia
10/24/15: Sydney, Australia
10/25/15: Melbourne, Australia
