Talib was on Colbert last night.  We’re a fan of both of them, but their interaction was kinda weird.  You can watch it here.  Kweli performed “Cold Rain” from Gutter Rainbows.

He also did do a web-only version of “Get By” which was much better, imo.  It’s not letting us embed, so here’s the link.

Talib Kweli + Hi-Tek are releasing their sophomore outing,  Revolutions Per Minute.   Exclusively produced by Hi-Tek, features on the album include appearances by Estelle, Bilal, Bun B, Mos Def, Jay Electronica, J. Cole, Res and Chester French. The album covers an array of topics that discuss the shortcomings of America (“Strangers”), society’s obsession with fame (“Got Work”), an honest discussion of drug use (“Lift’in Off”), the pining for a lover returning home (“Midnight Hour”), a music history lesson (“In the Red”), and even a track about Nigeria’s corruption-riddled oil business (“Black Gold”).

You guys are just going to download this huh? Here’s the itunes link:
Buy it now on iTunes in the iTunes LP format!
