Audio: Talib Kweli x Ryan Leslie - "Outstanding"

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.talib_kweli_outstanding_image1

With Prisoner of Consciousness just around the corner, Talib Kweli hits us with one of the first singles, a nice election day celebratory joint, from the upcoming album. "Outstanding" has Kweli spitting with a real flow that hasn't been seen from him in a minute, with Ryan Leslie on the hook.  Sound familiar? We heard the unpolished, unmastered version of this track earlier this year on Kweli and Z-Trip's Attack The Block mixtape. Now that it's cleaned up and ready for the album, it should give you an indication that PoC is going to be dope. And if it doesn't then maybe the album's features will win your ears and minds. RZA, Curren$y, Miguel, Kendrick Lamar and..Busta Rhymes? are all expected to make appearances on the album, which is set to drop on November 20. So tune in below and get ready to join Kweli as a prisoner of consciousness in a few weeks.
