Legendary MCs Yasiin Bey (formerly Mos Def) and Talib Kweli have each created an impressive amount of work. Kweli released his eighth solo record, Radio Silence, in November, and Bey has stayed busy on the airwaves and acting in dozens of movies. Under the moniker Black Star, the socially conscious rappers and activists released a single record, Mos Def and Talib Kweli Are Black Star, in the late ’90s that garnered praise for its insightful comments on black culture and for countering the negative gangsta-rap rhymes of the time. Though the Ogden show is listed as a stop on Kweli’s Radio Silence tour, Black Star will be performing (Denver’s the only city to receive that gift). Outside of a few scattered shows, it’s rare to see Bey and Kweli together; combined with Bey’s hints at retirement, that makes seeing Black Star live the holy grail for hip-hop heads.

Greg performance by a legend. Went thinking it was gonna be Black on Both Sides only to find out the promoters were pushing that not Yasiin. What we got was spiritual, like entering a hip hop shaman's tent.
