Talib Kweli recently revealed that he and partner Yaasin Bay aka Mos Def will release a reunion album sometime in 2012.

Kweli spoke with MTV about the forthcoming Blackstar project:

“I am working to put out a Black Star project for people to buy sometime next year.”

As Talib continued, he states:

“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.”

He went on to speak on the new record “Fix Up” which Blackstar premiered on the Colbert Show:

“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.”

Talib says they are trying to figure out the best way to go about releasing the songs:

“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.”
