Talib Kweli has been shaking things up musically with the latest releases he’s been dropping. Black Thought and Rah Digga tear up “Art Imitates Life” with their feature bars and Talib recruits YMCMB member Jae Millz and Stones’ Throw Oh No on the heavy “One, Two”. Talib plans on dropping his Prisoner of Concious on April 23rd, but you can find these two tracks on iTunes now.
Art Imitates Life f. AlBe Back, Black Thought & Rah Digga
Indy label Coalmine Records is working on a compilation project titled Unearthed, and this banger featuring four underground mavens will land on that album when it drops in the early second quarter of 2013.
Rah Digga has a few choice words for Fat Trel and my best friend. Those in San Bernardino this weekend can catch her close out her set at Paid Dues with this.. Spotted at TheWellVersed.
I didn’t make this record for press purposes or for hype cuz that’s not my thing. I got wind of various artists referencin me in a negative fashion. They poked fun at me I’m just pokin back. Its all sport to me. I wish em all the best, they just need to understand who is off limits. MC Lyte is off limits. Rah Digga is off limits. Respect those who kept hip hop raw so that we could still have a culture or get a first hand lesson in a lyrical ass whoopin. Love is love.
El Da Sensei reunites with his Artifacts crew for the first time (on a retail release) in over a decade! Throw in a Rah Digga feature and some !llmind production and you’ve got another banger off El’s upcoming Nu World Remix EP, dropping November 15th.
Next Thursday (February 24th), Rah Digga will be the headlining act at the Ladies First showcase in Brooklyn’s Southpaw, with special guests Nitty Scott, MC and Eternia among others. You can cop tickets here via Ticket Web for those interested in attending.
Back to the music, though: 9thmatic flips Digga’s Classic single into a jazzy, boom-bap head knocker.
