I know they premiered this track during their Colbert Report performance last month, but today the reunited hiphop duo released the official Internet-single for "Fix Up," the first taste of their forthcoming follow-up to the now-classic Mos Def & Talib Kweli Are Black Star. Though it's been 13 years since the last album, both MCs still go in over this sample-laced, nearly drum-less Madlib production. The lack of percussive knock here doesn't exactly make it a superb, triumphant return to glory, but it's still great to hear them making music together again.
