Talib Kweli revealed that his sometime-partner Mos Def could be releasing new music as Black Star in 2012. The Brooklyn rapper told MTV that he and Mos–now known as Yaasin Bey–have already recorded music together–though he’s unsure where all of the music may wind up.

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