Nope, I'm not talkin' about a PYT in my life. Don't fret ladies, I'm still single :-D
I'm talking one of my original loves, "Hip-Hop in its Essence is Real" as Common eloquently put it on his '94 classic song. I hit up the Black Star reunited show at Nokia Times Square and it reminded me how much I really do love hip-hop despite all the hate and negativity permeating the art form nowadays.
Mos & Kweli possessed an on-stage vibe that conjurs hip-hop's glory days as they rocked tracks from the Black Star LP in addition to solo joints from their respective careers. I was one of 2000-something rhyming along with the duo during what's sure to be one of 2009's best concerts, period.
The good folks at OGHipHop posted the video up top, while YN flip-cam'd the later show to post on Rap Radar.
I'll leave y'all with the footage and suggestions of new music that's carrying on tradition. Ifyou need help finding these projects, hit me up. Enjoy!
