[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.

[Hip-Hop] Talib Kweli – Attack The Block (Mixtape)

Talib Kweli is one of the lyrical masters of the game, so when he puts out free music, it’s a good idea to pay attention. Attack The Block may serve as a teaser to his upcoming album, Prisoner of Conscious, but it’s definitely a standout project all on its own. The 18-track project features verses from an eclectic group of artists including Black Thought, Lil Wayne, Mac Miller, Ryan Leslie, Ab-Soul, Das Racist, and even more. It’s this diverse selection of artists that really makes the mixtape distinctive from Kweli’s previous ventures.
