C’mon son. As nice as Talib Kweli is on and off the mic, you didn’t expect him to allow sucka MCs to live while he’s still obtaining building blocks in his empire, now did you? What we have here is good ‘ol fashioned smackdown aimed at posers and lameball acts still lingering in the slums when it’s apparent that good music is steadily on the rise in 2011.
Linking up with a few of his country cousins in Khrysis and Niim The Dream finds Kweli carving out a nice, angled space to lay the foundation for his Gutter Rainbows.
Enjoy the vid. Pre-order the album.
