Audio: Talib Kweli x Ryan Leslie - "Outstanding" + "Upper Echelon" Live Debut In NYC

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.Talib Kweli - "Upper Echelon" (live debut at MLB Fan Cave, NYC)

UPDATE: Kweli has confirmed via twitter that Prisoner of Conscious now has a firm release date of November 20th.

Two new joints from Talib Kweli, like audio oases making you click twice. First up is this loosie off his Attack The Block mixtape/free LP "Outstanding," featuring the talented mister Ryan Leslie which just hit the web via Kweli's tumblr (stream below). Also just coming to our attention is the fact that a live debut of the Harry Fraud-produced "Upper Echelon"--slated to be track #4 on his forthcoming real-deal album Prisoner Of Conscious (see the full tracklisting here)--was smuggled into the barrage of hits that was Kweli's recent live appearance at the MLB Fan Cave here in New York. Watch an edited hits reel of the full set after the jump, including the super extra-duty tuff "Echelon" which fades in at 2:11.
