In addition to You Already Knew, the inaugural leak off Black Star's forthcoming Aretha Franklin tribute mixtape, Black Friday saw Yasiin Bey (aka Mos Def) and Talib Kweli release the official lead single off their long-awaited sophomore collaborative set. On Fix Up, the underground mainstays drop characteristically complex, witty bars over the hazy soul samples of Madlib. Neither Black Star's forthcoming full-length nor the aforementioned street album have been assigned a solid drop date--keep it locked to The DJBooth for all the latest on both.
