Black Star Share New Song On The Midnight Miracle Podcast
The first two episodes of The Midnight Miracle — a new podcast with Dave Chapelle, Talib Kweli, and Yasiin Bey — were released today. In the second of those episodes, which is exclusive to the podcast subscription service Luminary, Kweli and Bey premiered a new song from their duo Black Star, which represents some of the only new material we’ve heard from them together since they released their debut Mos Def & Talib Kweli Are Black Star back in 1998.
Kweli and Bey have been talking up a new Black Star album for a while now, though nothing has materialized. In 2018, Bey formally announced a new Black Star album, produced by Madlib, but then just last year Kweli said that it was never going to come out, seemingly because of music industry issues.
But here’s a new Black Star song anyway (via Reddit), which is apparently produced by Madlib and was played at the end of the second episode of The Midnight Miracle. Listen below.
