During a recent interview with MTV on his recent album with Idle Warship Habits of the Heart, Talib talked on releasing a 2012 installation of Blackstar with Mos Def (aka Yaasin Bey) after a decade+ hiatus. See what he had to say,

“I am working to put out a Black Star project for people to buy sometime next year,” he said. “Me and Mos [Def] are focused on independence and quality of sound. We’re really into a Madlib/Dilla thing right now. Anything you hear from us is probably going to be that type of sound. And it’s about independence, so we are trying to find out the right mediums to get the songs out. When you heard ‘Fix Up’ on Colbert, it wasn’t even mixed; it was something we recorded a week before. Now we’re at the mixing stage of the song and we are going to put that out ourselves. We have a bunch of songs recorded. We are just trying to figure out the best way to release them, whether it’s going to be one by one, EP or album. Right now, the plan is to release ‘Fix Up’ and then Yaasin is working on a Yaasin Bey Presents project and then we’ll see how it goes.”
