“People thinkin M.C. is short hand for misconception….” -Talib Kweli
In my never ending struggle to keep the purest form of hip hop alive, I wanted to flash the lights back to BlackStar. Remember when everyone thought that Rawkus Records would be the home to all of the greatest overlooked talent in the game? Remember when you thought that all of your favorite emcees finally had a chance to make music in a world of shiny suits and expensive non-related music videos? That’s when music was really good! Backpackers of the world unite! Anyways, BlackStar had to be one of the greatest duo’s ever in hip hop. Infectious beat and the absence of pointless or gratuitous sex. It was all about the music. This video is about 10 years old and still hotter than most of the stuff you see today. Their music was so hot that there are still a lot of people that salivate just over the thought of Mighty Mos, Kweli and High Tech making good music again. Wa wa wa wa wa wa wa wa wa watch me crank dat Black Star!
