During a DJ set in Denver, Colorado this weekend, Yasiin Bey announced that Black Star, his rap project with Talib Kweli is most likely poised for a comeback.

As HipHipDX reports, Bey revealed that he and Kweli are working on a new album together which will be produced by Madlib. You can hear Bey make the live announcement in the clip via SoundCloud below.

The last and only Black Star album was released twenty years ago, back in 1998. The Black Star comeback seems very likely considering the recent Instagram photo of Bey, Kweli and Kanye West in the studio.
