Although it wasn't a big commercial success, the 1998 ablum Mos Def & Talib Kweli Are Black Star was a landmark for conscious rap.
The duo went on to successful solo careers after that, and have since gotten together sporadically for Black Star mini tours and projects.
They have a new tour coming up, but it's going to take a pretty long plane ride for most Hip Hop fans to make it.
Black Star will hitting Australia and New Zealand later this month.
October 22 - Brisbane, Australia - Eatons Hill October 24 - Sydney, Australia - The Domain October 25 - Melbourne, Australia - Myer Music Bowl October 26 - Auckland, New Zealand - Western Springs Stadium
Maybe this will lead to some more accessible dates.
