Many of us have waited for a new Black Star album since Rawkus Records released the duo's debut album thirteen years ago. There's been more and more things pointing to the dynamic duo residing in the studio to record a follow-up to that project. We've heard the snippet of this months ago after it was premiered live; they performed as Black Star on this year's Rock The Bells and they been making some guest apperances on eachother albums, most notably the un-fucking-belivably straight "History" utilizing one of those classic J Dilla beats that never got an official release until Mos' "The Ecstatic". I need to do a compilation of all the Black Star joints not included on "Black Star".
In other words "Fix Up" is the first single from the project which is titled "Aretha", as a tribute to you know who. Only a few hours later the second free single from the mixtape/street album has been made available for your pleasure. "You Already Know" is produced by 'Lib's younger brother Oh No and is found below "Fix Up".Kweli and Yasiin Bey is back!
