Talib Kweli Breaks Down ‘Prisoner Of Conscious’ + Interprets Jay-Z


Talib Kweli took a second to break down his latest studio LP Prisoner Of Conscious with a look inside the CD’s 18-page booklet – a beautifully produced accompaniment to the full release that includes a bundle of artwork and lyrics to all of the songs. Kweli touts the illustrations included in the package as the best of his five solo LPs. Prisoner Of Conscious dropped today and features appearances from Miguel, Melanie Fiona, Busta Rhymes, Seu Jorge, Ryan Leslie, Marsha Ambrosius and more. Okayplayer.com spent an entire day with Kweli yesterday, ahead of the release. Keep an eye out for a “Day In The Life” of Talib Kweli coming soon. In the meantime, take a look at the behind-the-scenes video below. Scroll down to check Kweli’s reading and personal interpretation of Jay-Z‘s “Moment Of Clarity.” Purchase Talib Kweli’s Prisoner Of Conscious via iTunes.
