Talib Kweli hit the stage at Late Night With Jimmy Fallon with Bilal and The Roots to perform “Come Here” – something new and fresh for the lovers from his forthcoming LP Prisoner Of Conscious. Kweli and Bilal pick up where they left off with “Talk To You (Lil’ Darlin)” and knock another one out of the park with this doo-wop inspired dose of grown folks music. Kweli takes to the speedy bpm – where he often shines as a lyricist – like water. His delivery is only buoyed by Bilal’s spotless falsetto against the soulful groove and sick pocket of percussion laid down by The Roots. The Roots also dropped a crazy performance with Toronto MC k-os to warm the audience up during the Fallon pre-show festivities a few nights ago. He performed “Try Again” – a track from his forthcoming LP Black On Blonde featuring Black Thought. Check both performances below. Purchase Prisoner Of Conscious via iTunes.
