Mos Def and Talib Kweli, two of conscious hip-hop's leading men, team up once again this fall. The dynamic duo first joined forces with their monumental group Black Star, but with the exception of last years Coachella festival, haven't shared the stage in years.
This highly anticipated, PlayStation sponsored union will tour under the name Breed Love Odyssey and will also feature Jean Grae and Pharoahe Monch. The festivities kick off October 28 in Sacramento California and will end in Houston on November 14.
PlayStation will offer a plethora of giveaways at every show, including software and free downloads from the Sony Connect store.
Always the Renaissance man, Mos Def has spent more time on the silver screen than the turntables of late. You can see Mos in such films as, "The Italian Job," "The Woodsman" and "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy." Mos Def is currently in Brazil shooting the movie "Journey to the End of the Night," and will also create original music for the film.
