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’
