Black Star

When: Fri., Sept. 16, 8 p.m. 2011

Emcees Mos Def and Talib Kweli have returned in earnest to their Black Star project, with plans to a second full-length for release next year. Their 1998 self-titled debut laid the course for indie hip-hop with its DIY ethic, pacifist ideology (in contrast to a mainstream rap world then in the throes of endless, violent retaliation) and low-key jazz and R&B-inspired beats.

Price: $43-99 (plus fees).
