The Bruce Leeroy of hip hop ‘Talib Kweli‘ is getting set to drop his fifth and sixth solo LPs, called Gutter Rainbows and Prisoners of Conscious. Back on May 10th of this year, Kweli reunited with Hi-Tek for a second Reflection Eternal album. The BK emcee will get back on the solo path, as he prepares his first solo albums since 2007’s Eardrum.
Talib was recently touring in the UK where he sat down with SoulCultureTV and discussed his next two albums.
“I have a new project called Gutter Rainbows, which I’m putting out completely outside the music business. But people still need to see it and feel it.” Kweli said. When pressed for more details, he revealed a second album in the works.
“Gutter Rainbows is an album, it’s a Talib Kweli album. I’ve been working on this album called Prisoners of Conscious, and that album is not ready. There’s a lot of music and statements I want to make on that album that I’m still working on but I still feel the need to put music out. So Gutter Rainbows is almost like the early outtakes of Prisoners of Conscious, but just embellished upon.”
Gutter Rainbows will be available virally throughout North America on January 25th. Meanwhile, the tangible copies will be distrusted across the globe. At the bottom of the article is his first cut produced by Ski Beatz. Other producers include S-1, M-Phazes, Shuko, Blaqthoven, KHRYSIS!, Maurice Brown, E. Jones, Nick Speed & Ty Neg.
