Video: Black Star x The Roots Live on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon
This Black Star reunion is all too real at this point. I’ll admit I had my doubts, but this new Black Star album definitely should be impacting this year. But before we get all that, apparently their mixtape Aretha will be released in the spring. Last night, on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Yasiin Bey and Talib Kweli performed their #BlackStarFriday surprise “You Already Knew” (which will be featured on the aforementioned mixtape). Watch above as they perform the Oh No produced jawn with The Roots. It doesn’t stop there, there’s more good ish after the jump. As a web exclusive watch them get into one of the best hip-hop songs ever made (no hyperbole) “Little Brother.” No, it doesn’t stop there either, double bonus time. After the performance check the clip of ?uestlove breaking down how the song came to be (y’all already know that’s Dilla).
