Dilla Month Day 11 – Blackstar “Little Brother”

Whaddup doe!!

Today’s jam comes from legendary duo Blackstar. Comprised of emcees Yasiin Bey (a.k.a. Mos Def) and Talib Kweli, the duo lent their vocals to this Dilla-produced track for the soundtrack to The Hurricane, the 1999 biopic starring Denzel Washington about boxer Ruebn “Hurricane” Carter, who was convicted and imprisoned for a crime he didn’t commit. Yet another perfect collabo, both Blackstar and Dilla came together to create a track that fell in line with the theme and the tone of the movie. A classic indeed.

Wassup up on a new Blackstar album though……I’m just sayin’
