Talib Kweli and the artist formerly known as Mos Def extend Black Star tourdates

After just three shows across the country, the Rock the Bells tour didn’t quite satisfy, especially given that the last date in Boston was canceled altogether. For those who were only going to see Mos Def (er, Yasiin, rather) and Talib Kweli perform their classic Black Star album, good news awaits.

Turns out they haven’t had enough of each other, and have decided to come correct with a (re) definition of hip-hop. So check out the below dates, and see if Black Star will be swinging through to show you they’re ruling hip-hop.
