From his start with Black Star, Talib Kweli has bubbled into versatile wordsmith forging strong relationships with the likes of Kanye West and Jay-Z. While he delved into his solo career, questions about a possible Black Star album always come up. In a recent interview with Vlad TV, Kweli says the chances of another Black Star album happening is bleak.

“I think the possibilities for seeing a Black Star album are pretty slim,” Talib said. “We do shows all the time. Black Star is a very lucrative thing. But, you know, that album is special. You know, part twos are overrated, bruh. People are always like ‘You need to make a part two to ‘Get Em High.” Yeah, ain’t no guarantee the part two’s gonna come out dope. ‘You need to make a Black Star album part two.’ You know, how about you just go listen to the old one? The reason you like it so much is cause it is what it is. Appreciate it for what it is.”

The first and only Black Star album Mos Def and Talib Kweli Are Black Star was released back in 1998.—Carl Lamarre
