Default Black Star - Black Star

Black Star by Black Star (Mos Def and Talib Kweli)

1. Intro
2. Astronomy (8th Light)
3. Definition
4. RE: Definiton
5. Children's Story
6. Brown Skin Lady
7. B Boys Will B Boys
8. K.O.S. (Determination)
9. Hater Players
10. Yo Yeah
11. Respiration
12. Thieves In The Night
13. Twice Inna Lifetime

10/10 for me, this album is a classic. The best duo ever in Hip Hop, can't wait for their new shit.

havn't heard this, but if it's also got Kweli on it, even if Mos Def sucks you know it's half decent.

Yea, if you haven't heard this you've been sleeping. No matter your views on Mos/Kweli you must respect this album It's in my top 5. Heres a dope track offa it called Respiration featuring Common.

^^That's like one of the top 5 greatest tracks ever IMO, just straight fuckin' poetry, it has my favorite chorus of all-time.

8... overrated album. A better variety in the type of beats used would have made a dramatic difference.
