Black Star (Yasiin Bey & Talib Kweli) @ Troxy, London, UK (20th Oct)
BLACK STAR, made up of Hip Hop heavyweights YASIIN BEY (AKA MOS DEF) & TALIB KWELI, flew straight from The States to deliver a monstrous show for the always eager London Hip Hop crowd
This show broke London’s three-year dry spell of the legendary duo, making it a rare, must-see hip hop event of the year. Black Star rose from the underground movement in the late 1990’s with the release of the album ‘Mos Def & Talib Kweli are Black Star’, now hailed as one of the greatest Hip Hop albums of our time. Since then, these Hip Hop masters have been spitting lyrics and dropping beats that have helped shape underground alternative Hip Hop, bringing it further into the mainstream eye.
