The BK MC Talib Kweli confirmed today in an interview with Big Von of KMEL that over the past several months he’s been working with “The Hip-Hop Fellow” 9th Wonder on a collaborative album tentatively titled B.A.D. or Build And Destroy. The interview was geared more towards exploring the nature of a truly independent artist in an entertainment landscape ensconced in technological nuance. However, when asked about what he was most looking forward to, Kweli was explicit and clear about his work thus far with 9th and used Dr. Dre’s The Chronic as a point of reference, seeming to claim that there may not have been a genuinely uplifting and “thematically conscious” album since. In any case, whatever comes out of this titanic duo, will surely be a treat for the masses. You can peep the interview in it entirety below.
