Ohhhh yeah, last night Jimmy Fallon set the bar high for the rest of the year with a visit from Black Star aka the pairing of Mos Def and Talib Kweli. Performing alongside The Roots they put in performances of two tracks from their Aretha Franklin inspired mixtape. For the masses watching at home they performed "You Already Knew" whilst J-Fal also upped a web exclusive performance of "Little Brother". Give the Former a look at the top whilst the web exclusive performance is viewable after the jump. Many thanks to the ever trusty Audio Perv for the video support.
After debuting their first single "Fix Up" on The Colbert Report last month, Black Star, aka Talib Kweli and Yasiin "Mos Def" Bey, gave fans a double dose of music last Friday. After revealing that they will be putting out an Aretha Franklin-inspired mixtape, the duo released "Fix Up" digitally via iTunes this past Friday, along with another brand new track from the upcoming mixtape. The track, titled "You Already Knew," was produced by OhNo, and is available for your listening pleasure below or for download at the cost of your email address here.
No news yet on when the mixtape will be released, but expect more information to surface in the coming months.
UPDATE: Courtesy of Stereogum, we now have a stream of "Fix Up" available for your listening pleasure below.
