Kweli steps up to the mic on 106 & Park’s The Backroom.
Sitting down with Life + Times, Talib speaks on his new cut off Prisoner of Conscious (which is out now) as well as his vintage, Kanye West-produced classic from his debut solo album Quality.
The trio take over Statik Selektah’s ShowOff radio show on Shade 45 with a freestyle over A$AP Rocky’s “1 Train.”
Talib joined Power 105.1′s The Breakfast Club to talk about his new LP, Prisoner of Conscious, the record industry, Rick Ross’ date-rape lyrics, radio play, DJ’ing, up-and-coming MC’s, and more.
While with Sway this week Talib discusses the recent messes Wayne and Ricky dealt with, actually feeling that the two should have apologized sooner so that they can continue “getting their money” (which is exactly how I feel).
Kweli also speaks on the “piggy-back” technique artists have been using for years as well.
