Video: Black Star Live In Paris

Black Star (+ a little Posdnuos! Remember when “Mos Def” was that new kid from UTD and it was a big deal when he cameo’d on a De La Soul track? I do.) rocking live over camera-vibrating bass at Bataclan in Paris. Yes, it’s a little overmodulated (so make sure you protect the bass-processing centers in your brain before listening) but this is far too much of an OKP fantasy concert not too post. Enjoy “Stakes is High”; “N**gas in Poorest”;  “You Already Knew” from Black Star Aretha; a bullet-worthy rendition of “Definition” with an extended acapella version on Super Cat‘s “Nuff Man A Dead” (LargeUp!)–and like five more joints. Don’t usually ram so many video clips into one post, but in this case, Roadblock a gwan. And there’s more coming from this European vacation via Yasiin and DJ Preservation‘s spin on Paris radio momentarily.New OKP t-shirt: my peoples went to Paris and all I got was a concert DVD’s worth of epic live performances: (Black & white photo by Nosakhare Malcolm).
