[Hip-Hop] Talib Kweli – Art Imitates Life (Feat. Black Thought & Rah Digga) x One Two (Feat. Jae Millz & Oh No)

Over the weekend, Talib Kweli decided to bless us with two gems from his much awaited Prisoner of Conscious album. The first track, “Art Imitates Life” is essentially a convention of the most underrated emcees in the game, featuring The Roots frontman, Black Thought, and female veteran, Rah Digga. The song itself is an absolute lyrical onslaught, full of quotable quips that’ll force you to keep rewinding back through each and every verse. While Black Thought slips in his patented socially conscious remarks, Rah Digga seems to channel her inner Freeway as she comments on the state of lyrics in hip-hop.

The second release features another unconventional pair with YMCMB’s Jae Millz, and Stone Throw’s Oh No adding in a couple verses over a funky yet agressive backdrop. Both tracks were produced by Oh No, and showcase why he’s one of the most revered producers out there. It’s songs like these that make you truly proud to be a hip-hop fan. Talib Kweli’s Prisoner of Conscious is set to drop on April 23, but you can still download these two tracks from iTunes right now.

Gangrene (The Alchemist + Oh No) – Drink Up feat. Roc Marciano

Gangrene, comprised of The Alchemist and Oh No, are ready to drop their second full length album, Vodka & Ayahuasca, via Decon Records this week. Straight up: this west coast psychedelic hip-hop collaboration does not fuck around. There’s some weird, grimy beats and lyrics that make you ask yourself, “did he just say that?”

The featured tracks are Dump Truck and Drink Up, but the real diamond on this album is Flame Throwers, and as the title suggests, that banger comes with some heat. Enjoy the free stream, and if it tickles your fancy, pick up a copy this week.
