Talib Kweli – “Radio Silence” (Album)

Hm. Something about Kweli’s artwork for this… an abstract rendering of a screaming person we cannot hear. “Radio Silence” – finished, done, dope. Boom!

(Oh, bank on the music being good, too.)

Talib Kweli – “Heads Up Eyes Open” feat. Rick Ross x Yummy Bingham

Take it to the top. There’s where we are with it.
Talib Kweli

Rick Ross is a Bawse fa’sho… yet he & Yummy felt compelled to answer Kweli’s call to jump on this choral vehicle (“Heads Up Eyes Open”) and ride it; to go up on this Talib trip. And the results feel spiritual. Good music for ya. Yeah, that is where we are with it indeed!

Talib Kweli – “She’s My Hero” (Prod. By Oh No)

‘Mommy, you’re free now.” That’s the quotable. Kweli buried it in a flurry of meaningful lines and rhymes, but that’s likely the feeling teen Bresha Meadows had when she shot and killed her abusive father. Talib Kweli put this single out in her tribute. Communicating that, despite what you feel about the kid taking her parent’s life, kid’s ought not even be made to feel like that’s a decision that has to be made. Deep.

Using the hashtag #FreeBresha supporters of Bresha Meadows have rallied around her, setting up a GoFundMe page for the family, here: http://www.gofundme.com/BreshaM. You can find the latest updates on Bresha’s situation at http://freebresha.wordpress.com/actions/

Talib Kweli x Styles P – “Nine Point Five” feat. Sheek Louch x Jadakiss x NIKO IS (Video)

Kill all the yapping. Not here for the chit-chat. The dope beat and the damn lyrics are what’s happening! Yessir!!

Several ‘hot spots’ in this “Nine Point Five” jawn off “The Seven” LP. The one you might miss is Kweli mentioning ‘uncomfortable feelings’ listening to “Planet Rock” (re: Afrika Bambaataa’s recent controversy). Jadakiss’ spit is the truth, too: “Hip-Hop ain’t as dead as it looks.”

Damn right, Jada! Respect to all on this track.

Talib Kweli Insists That Seasoned Artists Can Learn From Lil Yachty & 21 Savage (Video)

Talib Kweli tells Vlad that Lil Yachty, 21 Savage, Ugly God and the other young’uns in the rap game have something to teach the rap vets. No, helllll nooo; not about putting out good music. Rather, they know how to get a buzz that gets heat for an artist without paying playing the radio game. And that game has gotten even more expensive and more ‘in the shadows’ nowadays.

F*ck radio…don’t need no radio… [and] F*CK Gene Simmons!

Talib Kweli Speaks On His Times Meeting President Obama, Relationships With Other Artists And Much More (Video)

Tell the truth, we ‘never thought that Hip-Hop would take it this far’

According to Talib Kweli (above), President Obama got his favorite artists together in a room to share ideas on and declare his desire for criminal justice reform to be part of his administration’s legacy… and ask for their inputs & help. Talk about a work-play moment! Imagine a concert featuring Talib, A$AP Rocky, J. Cole, Busta Rhymes, Pusha T and others? Why not? It’s the White House! But nah, country first. Still sounds like a cool meet-up.

(The story about his Grandma though… wow!)

Kweli also speaks on his next project (with Styles P), Yasiin Bey, the experience of working with Q-Tip and getting on the A Tribe Called Quest album, Jay Electronica and more. DOPE interview!

Samuel L. Jackson x KRS-One x Sticky Fingaz x Mad Lion x Talib Kweli x Brother J – “I Can’t Breathe”

All lives will never matter until Black Lives Matter.
Talib Kweli

‘Calling out the violence of the racist police,’ is what Samuel L. Jackson is singing and what Sticky Fingaz, Talib Kweli, Mad Lion, Brother J and KRS-ONE saying with the rhymes in “I Can’t Breathe.” Mad Lion brought the beat. And check out KRS with the shutdown verse. Revolution!

The Black Power Mixtape (1967-1975) [Trailer]

Another must-see for your Black History Month experience: “The Black Power Mixtape” (1967-1975). That’s right man. We wouldn’t lead you wrong. A mixtape, before we really recognized the term for the most part, of powerful stuff on the Civil Rights Era struggle. Peep the trailer above ( rent/buy link below), teasing footage of Black Pathers co-founder Bobby Seale, reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., activist Angela Davis, and others; with commentary from contemporaries (like Talib Kweli).

The Black Power Mixtape is an award winning compilation feature documentary that displays the story of the African-American community 1967-1975, the people, the society and the style that fueled a change. Told with sparkling, beautiful and deep footage, lost in the archives in Sweden for 30 years.
