Tickets are on AMEX presale now (3/25) and go on sale to gen pop on 3/27 at noon for the early show (7PM) here and the late show (11:30 PM) here .

Mos Def is also makin' moves all by his lonesome, having recently announced a spring 2009 release of his new album The Ecstatic via a video short. Mos recently dropped a video for "Life In Marvelous Times" from that record, viewable below. Check out two MP3's, "Quiet Dog" and "Life in Marvelous Times", above.

Kweli recently reunited with Hi-Tek to breathe life back into Refection Eternal during a residency at the Blue Note in early March. Kweli has a few new dates lined up so far, including one free show at Columbia University on April 18th as part of Bacchanal '09 with, according to post at Columbia's Spectacle that has since been removed, Vampire Weekend.

Are the Columbia Bacchanal shows open to the public?

See everyone, these two are actual "rappers" as opposed to the shit you're dancing to at your lame ass parties. Lil Wayne and Kanye West = talkers. Black Star = rappers. Got it? See, rap used to be an art form. Now it's a complete joke. LOLZ!

Also, guaranteed more New Paltz students go to the reggae-funk show at one of their shitty bars than to see Talib Kweli that night. That town is fucked.
