Talib Kweli - Hostile Gospel Pt. 1 (Deliver Us)

Posted 8 years ago
Producer:
Just Blaze
Album:
Eardrum

“Conscious” rappers are well aware of the ongoing problems with mainstream hip-hop and the steady decline in both quality and sales.  Talib Kweli is certainly no exception to that rule, and in his new single, he gives the world Part 1 of the Hostile Gospel.  In the song, Kweli pleads for a deliverance from our problems, going so far as to speculate an apocalypse in the next decade.  Although Talib traditionally delivers well on the mic, what makes Hostile Gospel stand out is Just Blaze‘s street heavy production.  Thanks to a sample from the Space hit Deliverance, the song might get a few requests from the networks’ “outreach” programs.  Hostile Gospel is the fourth single to be released from Eardrum, in stores now.
