CHICAGO — The rap duo Black Star, which features solo artists Yasiin Bey and Talib Kweli, will headline this summer's Takin' It to the Streets Urban International Festival.
The music event will take place on June 15 in Marquette Park at the end of the six-day festival organized by the Inner-City Muslim Action Network.
Admission is free.
The festival will be the latest edition of an event started in 1997 that organizers say is "a Muslim-led festival where artistic expression, spirituality and urban creativity inspire social change."
Kweli and Bey, formerly known as Mos Def, originally teamed up together in 1998 for the album "Mos Def & Talib Kweli are Black Star." Though there has been talks of a follow-up album, it likely won't come this year, according to Rolling Stone.
