Week Three

When two of the best lyricists in hip hop team up and make an album you know it's going to be great, but great hardly describes the level that Black Star is on. With Mos Def and Talib Kweli as it's members Black Star is one of the smartest groups around. Even though they've only released one album, I would say that they are among the best rap duo in hip hop. On their album Mos Def & Talib Kweli Are Black Star, it's impossible to choose my favorite song, but Redefinition is a classic, as is Thieves in The Night but really all of it is amazing. If you have a hard time understanding rap, this is a group that you should look up the lyrics while listening to them because of how incredible they are. This album was released in 1998 under Rawkus Records and pretty much changed the look and sound of under ground hip hop. Keep listening to music and expanding your knowledge. Stephen Kaplan
