15 Years in and Talib Kweli is Still Schooling the Competition. He’s Looking for New Leaders…(Audio)

Hi. We recently created AFH TV, Ambrosia For Heads’ streaming video service, because we believe real Hip-Hop deserves its own dedicated TV home. But, there are doubters, so, we need your help. If you have enjoyed anything on AFH over the last 7 years, we are asking you to subscribe to AFH TV. It is only $1.99/month or $12/year, and already features some amazing content, but the best is yet to come. Thank you for all of your support.

Talib Kweli is a week away from his second album of 2013. Gravitas will include the Statik Selektah-produced “New Leaders.” Joined by Flatbush, Brooklyn’s The UnderAchievers, Kweli demands new leadership in Hip-Hop, in Brooklyn, on Twitter, in society, and in government.

Throughout the last 15 years, Kweli has been able to put himself at the zeitgeist of youth, and explain just what’s lacking. “New Leaders” is just that, as well as an extension, as heard in the lyrics, of the conversation friend and collaborator Kanye West started six months ago with “New Slaves.”

While Kweli’s catalog has pushed in different directions since his Rawkus Records days, this joint fits snugly in the evolution one of Talib’s greatest attributes: music for the people.
