This whole Black Star reunion is turning out to be quite an emotional roller-coaster for their die-hard fans. After leaking a tantalizing Madlib-produced snippet, the duo proceeded to rock the Rock The Bells and then announced their own tour dates —and then cancelled them : (. But the coaster is headed uphill again because those dates are being rescheduled as we speak AND the word has come down that Yasiin and Kweli will be debuting a new Black Star track titled “Fix Up” tonight on the Colbert Report (Comedy Central, 11:30pm EST) along with their 1998 classic “Astronomy (8th Light).” I am guessing (hoping) that “Fix Up” might be the same untitled track that was leaked–so I can hear it in its entirety. But on the other hand if it’s a totally new song, thatta be fresh, too. Hell, I would pay good money to ride this roller-coaster! See y’all in TV-land.
