Black Star In-depth Biography

Marcus Garvey}, founder of the united Negro Improvement Association manifested his ideas by creating the Black Star} shipping line, designed to repatriate blacks to Africa. Garvey's} political vision not only inspired Mos Def} and Talib Kweli's} band name, but many of their thematic concerns about the African-American community. Black Star} is part of the Native Tongues} crew, a collective that contains A Tribe Called Quest}, De La Soul}, the Jungle Brothers}, the Bush Babies} and Common}. Def's} first break was his showcase on De La Soul's} album Stakes Is High} on the track "Big Brother Beat."} Kweli} was half of Reflection Eternal} prior to joining up with Def}. Def} has many television roles under his belt and continues to act. Black Star} bought into the landmark African-American bookstore in Brooklyn, Nkiru Books, where Kweli} had worked for years. Some of Black Star's} early work can be heard on Lyricist Lounge Vol.1}, a club where rappers got to test their chops along with other up-and-coming artists. Articulate and provocative, Black Star} looks to classic rappers like KRS-One}, Run D.M.C}. and Public Enemy} to inform their sound. Their self-titled debut grapples with "black love and esteem" and is concerned primarily about the stories that aren't being told in their communities. They are one of the few hip-hop bands that realize not everyone in the African-American community is involved in a gangsta culture. That fact alone makes them some of the most intelligent rappers to grace the vapid hip-hop scene in the late '90s. ~ Ryan Randall Goble, All Music Guide
