Like the two did at Rock the Bells earlier this month, rappers Mos Def and Talib Kweli will be Black Star in Chicago this week. They’ll play two shows at House of Blues this Friday (9/23). Doors will open for the early show (9PM) at 7:30PM, and for the late show (12:30AM) at midnight. Tickets are still available for both the early and late show.

In the late 90s, the melding of two underground stars (Talib Kweli of Reflection Eternal & Mos Def) created the influential indie hip hop crew Black Star, who crossed over into the mainstream with their intelligent rhymes and unique beats. The crew has been focusing on solo work in the 13+ years since, but rumors of new material are prevalent. Cross your fingers. Check out a classic video below…
