BLACK STAR, made up of Hip Hop heavyweights YASIIN BEY (AKA MOS DEF) & TALIB KWELI, are flying in straight from The States to deliver a monstrous show for the always eager London Hip Hop crowd
This upcoming show breaks 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.
Titans of Hip Hop’s in their own right, Yasiin Bey and Talib Kweli have individually built up a wealth of experience in their solo careers. Between them, they have collaborated with the likes of Gorrilaz, Kanye West, Just Blaze, Pharrel Williams and more, making their names truly legendary in the industry. Once together, these legends are set to bring the house down. Joining them on the Troxy stage will be born and bred New Yorker Homeboy Sandman from Hip Hop label Stones Throw Record, as well as the UK’s very own Children of Zeus and Awate.
Expect razor sharp lyrics and floor shaking beats that will keep you on your feet all night long. Since their last performance as Black Star in 2014, Bey and Kweli have been teasing fans with the idea of another show together. Now, three years later, it’s finally happening. Londoners, brace yourselves for what will be a very special one off show. Don’t miss out.
