In honor of Mos Def and Talib Kweli, (aka Blackstar), being fucking awesome, I’m gonna go with some a little different this week. Strictly songs with both Mos and Talib dropping knowledge. For those of you who don’t know, these two are easily in the top 10 underrated of all time. What I mean by that is that you’ll never hear them on the Maroon5, I mean radio, and the larger masses don’t know much about them, not counting the real hip hop heads of course. First up is one of my favorite songs ever, “Thieves In The Night”. The chorus alone is unreal. “Hiding like thieves in the night from life, illusions of oasis making you look twice”. We can only hope that 2013 bring us a reunion of these two in the studio to come out with another Blackstar album.
