Mos Def and Talib Kweli have launched blackstarhub.com, a pretty basic Tumblr blog. It’s going to be your source for some free tunes and hopefully the launch of the Black Star Aretha Franklin mixtape. Check out the latest track You already knew. Black Star "You Already Knew" by 3DDistro
Oh man, I cannot wait for this! If you haven’t seen the show, Dexter, you are not living your life the proper way. It’s a huge success, and follows Michael C. Hall as a serial killer that you can’t help but root for. And our boy Mos Def will be appearing on the upcoming season. […]
You can’t fault Mos Def for kickin it on Yo Gabba Gabba! This show has managed to lock down some pretty major artists (including the Roots). Mos plays a superhero in this that has to go calm down a monster. It’s equal parts cute and awesome.
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 […]
The BlakRoc project is getting mad press these days, so we thought we’d update our last post and bring it back to all you loyal readers.

Since we here at 4080Records seem to love documentaries oh so very much, I thought I’d keep going with the trend. Get ready to spend 49 minutes with Mos Def in Japan.
I’m not sure where these are coming from, but this little video of what Mos Def would do if he was president is amazing. Most of his ideas aren’t really that surprising based on the stuff he’s said in the past, but I particularly cared for the way he ended things….by declaring a 100 year […]
It’s true. Apparently the police in Las Vegas have issued a warrant for his arrest. Why would anyone want to arrest Mos? Good question. According to Pitchfork, Mos allegedly was in a confrontation with some photographer at the Men’s Apparel and Garment Industry Convention. Leave it up to Mos to get into a tussle at […]
