Published Apr 15, 2013After numerous delays, hip-hop veteran Talib Kweli is finally gearing up to release his new album Prisoner of Conscious on May 7 via via Blacksmith/EMI. Now, he's shared the full tracklisting and album art.
The cover, which is available above, showcases the album information as printed on the back of an art canvas. Which, naturally, begs the question of what will be on the back of the release/front of the image. A blank canvas? A Pollock? A nude portrait of Talib Kweli?
As for the tracklisting, the 15-song release is packed with a diverse cast of guests, from Miguel, Curren$y, Kendrick Lamar and Marsha Ambrosius to Nelly and Busta Rhymes. Life Aquatic crooner Seu Jorge even stops by for a song.
