Top Prospect Kembe X Delivers His Debut Album, "Talk Back" (Stream)

After several months of quality song releases the Chicago emcee has dropped his highly-anticipated debut LP.

It's been a big week for DJBooth Top Prospects. Just one day after Cousin Stizz shared his latest project, another TP alumni has unveiled a brand new body of work as Kembe X releases his highly-anticipated debut album, Talk Back.

The Chicago native set off rumors of a possible TDE signing with a Twitter post last month, and though it was later confirmed Kembe had not (yet) signed with Top Dawg, our anticipation level remained as high as ever for the full-length follow-up to his 2014 self-titled EP.

Talk Back packs 14 original tracks and includes previously released, Booth-approved selections "Welcome To America," "10 Feet Tall," "Squad Day (Work Week)," "Talk Back," and "Buried Alive."

Frequent collaborator and fellow Chicagoan Alex Wiley appears on "Paper" alongside rising vocalist Zacari P, and Columbia Records artist Roméo Testa lends vocal support on "Alive," while production comes courtesy of The Antydote, Bentley Hazelwood, Hippie Sabotage and more.

The project is available for digital purchase on iTunes and full streaming via Spotify below.
