Mos Def and Talib Kweli’s Black Star was part of the Native Tongues crew (which included Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, The Jungle Brothers, Common, and the Bush Babies), which was inarguably at the vanguard of literate and intelligent hip-hop in the late 90’s. I’ve always been so very sad that Black Star was limited to their single 1998 release.  I used to play this album in-store all the time during my record store jockey days, and it remains one of my favorite hip-hop releases. 

So here’s Black Star with Common doing ’Respiration‘.

    Ask and you shall receive, eh monkey? I had this album on repeat last night, during the Mario Party.
