Talib Kweli ft. The UnderAchievers - New Leaders

Posted 2 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
Statik Selektah
Album:

The rap game could use a few New Leaders—and you shouldn’t count Talib Kweli out of the running just because he’s been in the game for a minute. On the latest single off his fifth full-length, the B.K. stalwart steps to the mic with some fresh ideas that, if enough people run with ‘em, are sure to reinvigorate the hip-hop game. Over Statik Selektah‘s lush sample work, the Blacksmith Music general urges listeners to set aside materialism and negativity and take charge of their own destinies. NYC buzzmakers The UnderAchievers are first to grab the baton; partners-in-rhyme AK and Issa Gold lace the back with some politically-charged lyrical flames. Featuring this inspiring joint, reader-approved lead single The Wormhole and much more, Gravitas is scheduled to drop December 15, via KweliClub.com.
