Rawkus Era Flava: Pete Rock’s remix of Black Star’s “Respiration” feat. Black Thought !

As transcendent as the DJ Hi-Tek original which features Common, this Pete Rock remix of “Respiration” (the Flying High Mix”), with Black Thought taking Comm’s place, is equally dope.Respirationremix

This DATE in Hip Hop (13 yrs. ago)

Blackstar- Mos Def & Talib Kweli Are Black Star: On May 26, 1998, Mos Def and Talib Kweli released their debut album as a duo. Simply put, two of the best MCs ever, got together, postponed their solo LPs, and made a classic album. These two lyrical geniuses have a chemistry that is second to none and they display it on this album from beginning to end. Til this day, great MCs have gotten together to make a collab album, but this absolutely “NO SKIP” album will NEVER get outdone.

Producers: Shawn J. Period and Hi-Tek.

Guest Appearances: Common, Wordsworth, Punchline, and Jane Doe.

They show great chemistry throughout the whole album. A great back and forth flow on Astronomy… Kweli does an amazing solo track on K.O.S.(Determination)…. an incredibly classic track in Respiration… my favorite verse on the album is Talib’s 2nd on Hater Players… but TWO tracks on this album are my FAVORITES, check them here
