The Revolution Will Not Be Televised…

…Or broadcast live on the net

-Talib Kweli

Outside of their 1998 album Mos Def and Talib Kweli didn’t release many songs under the Black Star moniker. There were appearances their separate projects, but not too many that you could call a “Black Star track.”

“Little Brother” is one of the few non-album Black Star songs and it was featured on the soundtrack of the 1999 film, “The Hurricane.”  The duo drops inspiration to their little brothers of the world and leaves the listener with a sense of enlightenment and empowerment, as all Mos Def and Talib songs do. The J Dilla produced number, samples “It’s About Time” by Roy Ayers Ubiquity.
