We still haven’t gotten the new record we were promised at the beginning of the year, but who are we to complain, Mos Def & Talib Kweli are once again performing as Black Star and will be here in the LA area to play at Club Nokia on Saturday, September 22nd! If you’d like to see these living legends courtesy of Melting Pot, as they celebrate the 20th anniversary of the famed Lyricist Lounge, make sure to e-mail me at michael[at]meltingpotblog.com before 12noon on Friday, September 21st!!!
