Support from none other than the DJs favourite DJ, Mr Thing and very special guests soon to be announced.
Talib Kweli and Yasiin Bey aka Mos Def are BLACK STAR.
BLACK STAR rose from the underground movement of the late 1990s and released one album "Mos Def & Talib Kweli are Black Star" in 1998. The album rose to critical acclaim and is praised as one of the greatest hip-hop albums of our time. Black Star has continued to help shape underground alternative hip-hop and bring it further into the mainstream eye. Both have gone on to greater commercial and critical success in separate solo careers. Although they have only released one album, throughout the years Black Star has stayed active. Talib Kweli & Yasiin Bey (Formally Mos Def) have appeared on each others albums and various other tracks together.
Former Scratch Perverts member and DMC Scratch Champion MR THING will also be doing his thing on the night, playing all your favourite hip hop, old school beats and breaks: the flavour of choice from the prolific London DJ... THING ‘s world class reputation sees him touring and performing with the likes of legendary DJ Jazzy Jeff, Marley Marl, Beastie Boys, DJ Premier + Slum Village. You know he’ll smash it.
In 2011 Kweli said, "I would love to get back into it whenever he's ready." That time is now. This is a very special one off London show. Don't miss out.
