WATCH: black star on the colbert report

Black Star (Yasiin Bey, formly known as Mos Def + Talib Kweli) stopped by The Colbert Report last week to perform two tracks – Fix Up (unreleased) and Astronomy (8th Light) – and to talk briefly with the comedic host.  Colbert was hilarious and had great synergy with the hip-hop duo.  They discussed “underground” hip-hop and Bey’s name change, among other topics.

I’m glad they are still collaborating and giving hungry hip-hop fans hope for the saturated urban culture of mediocre hip-hop.  Not only that, they rocked fresh fitted outfits at the show.  It’s great to see them oh The Colbert Report – such a fitting opportunity.  Props to the PR person who secured this.

Check out the performances and interview below.
