The last time fans of seminal Brooklyn rap duo Yasiin Bey and Talib Kweli received news about their long-awaited Black Star reunion album was in 2019.
As their second LP’s release date remains in question, Bey and Kweli’s longtime friend Dave Chappelle has rejoining forces with him for the comedy giant’s latest project The Midnight Miracle podcast, according to a press release on Tuesday.
Kweli, the artist formerly known as Mos Def and Chappelle Show co-creator are launching the show on the Apple’s new podcast subscription network Luminary, which is slated to debut in May.
“Making a podcast isn’t the obvious next move for me, but it’s the right one,” Chappelle said. “The Midnight Miracle gives you a look into how me and my friends process the world around us, and I think it will change the way listeners think of what a podcast can be.”
