Talib Kweli‘s Prisoner Of Conscious standout “Upper Echelon” gets a remix from super producer 88-Keys with the arrival of the “Upper Echelon” (88-Keys Top Tier Remix) featuring Nemo Achida. 88-Keys turns the trapped out lyrical monster into a percussive beast that may remind Kweli followers of the advent of his Kanye West produced 2002 smash “Get By.” Heavy on the rudiments and hi-hats, the production is a super dope alternate take rooted in hard spitting and a great piano chop. Check the track below to listen to “Upper Echelon” (88-Keys Top Tier Remix). Purchase the Prisoner Of Conscious LP via iTunes. Stay tuned for more from Talib Kweli.
