“Self Savior” – Review Of Talib Kweli’s Gutter Rainbows

By | 13 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/01/tss-presents-smoking-sessions-with-talib-kweli"> If there is one thing Hip-Hop loves more than comparisons, it's labels. Some rappers are "ringtone" while some are "gangsta." Others are "pop" and a significant portion are "conscious." Accepted or not, Talib Kweli has fallen into last category. Viewing the glass half full, this connotation has benefited him his entire career as one of the most elite of his kind garnering respect from both artist and fans alike. On the flip side, that same "conscious" label has dissuaded many from listening in fear of being preached to for an entire album. Whatever <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/01/tss-presents-smoking-sessions-with-talib-kweli">Talib describes</a> as his true style, the blueprint is an efficient one and one on full display with newest project Gutter Rainbows.

Talib Kweli Feat. Jean Grae – “Uh Oh” x “Cold Rain” Video

By | 11 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/01/listen-to-talib-kweli-gutter-rainbows"> From the very beginning, "Uh Oh" sounds like the soundtrack to a horror film. Not the cheesy, faux-scary feel that usually draws a comparison like that, but the kind of atmosphere that makes Dracula's castle or Camp Crystal Lake leap to mind. The stomping drums, fluttering synth and chanted chorus exude a sense of menace, and the gothic organ stabs bring the crashing lightning and pouring rain to complete the scene. And, as is only fitting, Talib Kweli and Jean Grae are lyrical monsters on the track. The first lady of Blacksmith Records says they're "eternally superlative," and despite the impossibility of this statement, it sounds on the mark when describing the honed skill that the two flash here. If they were actually monsters, Talib and Jean would definitely be kin to the intelligent Dracula, rather than Jason Voorhees. Gutter Rainbows drops this upcoming Tuesday, January 25th. Listen to the full project in advance <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/01/listen-to-talib-kweli-gutter-rainbows">here</a>.
