We would be remiss to not mention that Bilal's highly anticipated new LP, Airtight's Revenge also just hit stores today via Plug Research. To promote the release, Bilal will be embarking on a national US tour with his band. The first show is tonight in his hometown, Philly (check the full tour sched here, don't forget he'll be in NYC on Sat). After the jump, we also have a video of Erykah Badu speaking on how she first met Bilal through Common, and her love for Bilal's voice and his music. You can also stream the entire album through AOL Spinner for the remainder of this week.
