Black Star - "You Already Knew"/"Fix Up"

It's been 13 years since Mos Def and Talib Kweli united to drop Mos Def and Talib Kweli Are Black Star, cementing a place in the pantheon of underground hip-hop classics. A lot has changed since, most notably Mighty Mos starring in Dexter and changing his name to Yasiin Bey. One thing that certainly hasn't is their masterful lyrical abilities, as they will soon display via a tribute album to Aretha Franklin. Check out the first two cuts off the release: the boombox-ready "Fix Up" produced by Mad Lib and the overtly soulful "You Already Knew" courtesy Mad Lib's little bro Oh No.
