UPDATE:

Earlier in the week, Talib Kweli randomly posted his 10 favorite albums on Instagram. It turns out it wasn’t so random.

Kweli is one of the curators of Experience Vinyl, a vinyl subscription company where different artists will choose that month’s music to distribute. The company is actually launching this month, and Kweli was the first curator.

Essentially, how it works is that each month, members will receive a selection of that month’s artist-curated “Desert Island Disc” collection. Each record will include a personal description written by or for the artist about the record’s importance. Membership to this service will cost less than $30 a month.

In addition to Kweli, Quincy Jones, Elton John, George Clinton and Cyprus Hill have already signed up for this cool service.

See the original story below:

Don’t @ Talib Kweli.

Earlier today, rapper and music expert Talib Kweli IG’d the list you see above. As you can probably tell, it’s a list of the rapper’s ten favorite albums of all time.

Here’s what his list looks like:

10. Mama’s Gun – Erykah Badu
9. Reasonable DoubtJay Z
8. Done by the Forces of NatureJungle Brothers
7. Live at the Filmore WestAretha Franklin
6. LegendBob Marley
5. Winter in America – Gil Scott-Heron
4. De La Soul is DeadDe La Soul
3. Midnight MaraudersA Tribe Called Quest
2. Illmatic – Nas
1. A Love SupremeJohn Coltrane

Looking at his choices, there are not many surprises. And it’s always interesting examining the music that influences a great musician.

Speaking of music, Kweli has an album with Syles P called The Seven coming out later this month.

Maybe one day that album will be on a great musician’s list.

don’t @ me
