Black Star


Together, yasiin bey and Talib Kweli are known as Black Star – the seminal hip-hop duo from New York City who changed music forever in 1998 with their self-titled album Mos Def and Talib Kweli are Black Star.

yasiin bey and Talib Kweli first united to form what they penned “the best alliance in hip- hop,”. Mos Def and Talib Kweli are Black Star – which quickly became one of the genre’s most revered works and launched both already-rising stars into the MC stratosphere.

Luminary, the leading subscription-based podcast and audio entertainment platform, has released Black Star’s highly-anticipated album No Fear of Time – their first in nearly 24 years – exclusively on the Luminary platform. Black Star fans can access the album by subscribing to Luminary, which will be the exclusive home to No Fear of Time beginning today.
