Blaqstarr, the Baltimore club DJ who recently brought us Handstand, has joined forces with B.K. vet Talib Kweli (one-half of legendary duo Black Star, coincidentally) for newly-leaked mixtape inclusion War of the Roses. On this hard-hitting banger, the headliner’s fusion of rock ‘n’ roll and club music sets the stage for a lyrical story of love in times of war. If you’re digging Roses, be sure to download Blaq’s aptly-titled Blaqstarr: The Mixtape when it hits his official site April 12.
