Talib Kweli and Yasiin Bey, who together are Black Star, have debuted a new song on their new podcast with Dave Chappelle The Midnight Miracle, which launched on May 11, via Luminary Podcast Network. The show was recorded last year during Chappelle’s annual Summer Camp in Ohio and the second episode of the podcast titled ‘Gladiator Circus World’ is where you can hear the new Black Star track.
They posted the full first episode of the podcast on YouTube, with the rest available for subscribers. Kweli stated on Instagram, “We gonna do it like we on the streets, this first taste free, you gotta pay for the next one tho”. The podcast will also feature other artists and creatives ranging from Questlove to Chris Rock and Jon Hamm to Mo Amer.
Yasiin Bey first shared the news of a soon coming Black Star album a few years ago at a Madlib DJ set in Denver, Colorado, but last year Talib Kweli seemed to suggest it would not be coming out.
Speaking about the podcast, Dave Chappelle, who is the middle of transforming an old fire station into a comedy club, stated “Making a podcast isn’t the obvious next move for me, but it’s the right one. 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”.
