Talib Kweli Talks Career & New Album

Talib Kweli is a true veteran of hip hop music. In 2010 he and DJ Hitek released their second collaboration LP as Reflection Eternal, Revolutions Per Minute. His upcoming fourth solo album, Gutter Rainbows, is packed full of production talent and due for release on the 25th of January – to be closely followed by a further record entitled Prisoner of Consciousness. Kweli’s decision to set up his own record label Talibra and release the album himself is a reflection (I’m obligatorily bound to say ‘no pun intended’ at this point, despite the fact that this isn’t really a pun even I did) on the incompatibility of major/independent values.
