Black Star Perform 'You Already Knew' on 'Fallon'

Hip-hop duo raps Aretha-inspired 'You Already Knew'

Rolling Stone

"Never get caught up in a name," rapped Talib Kweli during last night's Late Night With Jimmy Fallon appearance by the on-again, off-again duo Black Star. For fans of the group, that's good advice; co-founder Mos Def has recently begun answering to another name, Yasiin Bey. One name, however, stands tall for the group: Aretha Franklin. The great soul singer is the inspiration for an upcoming Black Star mixtape, which will feature the track "You Already Knew," seen here.
