Published Jul 08, 2015Last we heard from Talib Kweli, he was flexing his rhyming muscles on a track for Game of Thrones. Now, he's ditched the fantasy television shtick to revisit some deep cuts from his musical past.
Last night (July 7) the iconic New York rapper dropped a new album of rarities and B-sides without any warning. Titled Train of Thought: Lose Lyrics, Rare Releases & Beautiful B-Sides Vol. 1, the digital album is available right now over here.
It features ten unearthed tracks and includes appearances from Common, Kanye West and Killer Mike, while Yasiin Bey (formerly known as Mos Def) appears as part of a Black Star number ("Bright as the Stars"), as well as receiving a featured credit on "Fortified Live."
