If you’re like me, you may feel that Talib and Mos have never stood a chance. Their solo stuff so far has just not been able to live up to the astounding collaboration record they released as Black Star. Sure there are standout tracks every once in a while, and Mos’ Black on Both Sides is fantastic. But somehow, I can never shake the feeling that Black Star was close to the perfect record.
By that I mean one of those records you just don’t ever want to change tracks on. You play it through over and over again. One end to the other.
Pitchfork is reporting that they got together for a track on Mos’ new album The Ecstatic, and have finally released the video for it. I like the track.
