It’s been 20 years since Yasiin Bey and Talib Kweli emerged as Black Star and they are coming full circle to reunite and release a new album this year. Yasiin Bey made the announcement in Denver, Colorado this past weekend during a Madlib DJ set. Reddit uploaded the audio from the show and Bey can be heard telling the audience that the new project is “coming soon.”

Madlib shares his “10 Summers Old” instrumental single which is a limited edition 7-inch with “Barrel Proof” on the B-side. The song can be purchased from Rappcats.com and Technical Equipment Supply in Ypsilanti, Michigan. Madlib has a new collaboration album with Freddie Gibbs titled Bandana and it follows their previous success with Pinata. Madlib is on a brief break from his tour schedule that will resume at the end of the month in Manchester, England.
Stones Throw just released the never-heard-before “Da Rawkus” from J.Dilla and Madlib’s Jaylib album. The song is part of the first release from Stones Throw’s Vinyl Subscription which makes all of their new vinyl releases available for $250 per year. Jaylib’s Champion Sound originally came out 14 years but “Da Rawkus” was not included on the album. The Jaylib Remixes are coming out for the first time on vinyl in 2017 and “Da Rawkus” is the previously unreleased song in the collection.
