Talib Kweli – Prisoner of Conscious [LP Stream]
While spending the day with OKPTV, Talib Kweli went ahead and released the full stream of his highly anticipated 5th LP, Prisoner of Conscious, moments ago. Set to hit shelves tomorrow, listen to all 17 tracks of POC, below (via Billboard). “When I look at my favorite hip-hop albums, from Andre 3000‘s Love Below or The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, those are hip-hop love albums,” says Kweli. “I feel like when people talk about real life emotions and real life feelings they resonate longer, longer than rappers who talk about gangsterism, sex and violence and longer than rappers who just talk about hip-hop, how real they are and how underground they are. I wanted to make an album that really spoke to the lives that people are living.” And that’s why we love Kweli – check below for why you love him, as well. Features include Miguel, Bajah, Melanie Fiona, Curren$y, Kendrick Lamar, Busta Rhymes, Nelly, Seu Jorge, Marsha Ambrosius, Ryan Leslie, and more (pr-order it here).
