Black Star Announce No Fear of Time, First New Album in 24 Years
Black Star—the duo of Yasiin Bey and Talib Kweli—have finally announced the details of a new album. Their second full-length, No Fear of Time, arrives nearly 24 years after their 1998 debut Mos Def & Talib Kweli Are Black Star. Madlib produced the new album, which will get released on the podcasting platform Luminary on May 3. Find the album cover and a teaser below.
In a press release, Talib Kweli shared a statement about the new album:
In 2018, Yasiin Bey told a crowd in Denver, Colorado that he and Talib Kweli had teamed up with producer Madlib for new material. Madlib mentioned it again the same year in his Rappcats newsletter.
Luminary is the home of The Midnight Miracle, Yasiin Bey and Talib Kweli’s podcast with Dave Chappelle. Kweli has another podcast, called People’s Party With Talib Kweli, on Luminary, too. Listen to a new episode of The Midnight Miracle below.
