"Grand opening, grand closing." 

Those are Jay-Z's words from his song "Encore," and they perfectly apply to Black Star's current situation.

Talib Kweli said in April that a follow-up to the New York group's 1998 classic Mos Def & Talib Kweli Are Black Star was forthcoming. He was just looking for the right deal to release the Madlib produced-project. 

Kwa then spoke to Jimmy Fallon last month and said the album was in its final stages. But something went wrong since then, which Kweli explained after a fan asked about the LP.

Yasiin Bey, who dropped his Mos Def moniker years ago, has been silent about the new project. But maybe he'll give some insight about it down the road. 

Are you disappointed that a new Black Star album probably won't see the light of day?
