Black Star headlined an incredible show at The Mezzanine in San Francisco on Wednesday night. Contributor Vivek Krishnan was on hand to experience the epic epic show:
Black Star always waits awhile after the openers to perform, they came on stage at midnight. It seemed just approaching the stage opened up a source of positive energy to flow in and give the crowd a second wind after so much dancing.
Black Star is comprised of the legendary Talib Kweli and Mos Def. Talib Kweli’s name literally means “seeker of truth” which, in this writer’s opinion, is just what he has done and enlisted upon his fans. Kweli’s lyrics are hard hitting, with a political flare that is rare in recent times. Mos Def, who recently changed his stage name to Yasiin Bey, is one of the greatest hip hop artists and actors of late.
We’ll post the full review tomorrow, so stay tuned. Check out our photo gallery below:
