Talib Kweli & Styles P Prove Their Numbers Always Add Up On New Collab (Audio)
Talib Kweli recently announced the formation of a brand new collective, one that he is calling “Colours of the Culture.” Made up of artists, filmmakers, MCs, producers, and various other creatives, the new outfit is shaping up to be the latest in Kweli’s career-long attempt to bridge the worlds of music with others. Just this year alone, the Brooklyn MC and activist has been on a spree of sorts, dropping a surprise project, Train of Thought and shortly thereafter came F*** the Money, a free album which features, amongst others, Styles P. Last week brought the news of Indie 500, a collaborative project Kweli is dropping with 9th Wonder and today a new piece of art has been released from the Kweli arsenal.
Roy G Biv: What A Colourful World is the debut album from Colours of the Culture, which is now available for streaming here. One of the 18 tracks arrives in the form of a due reuniting longtime collaborators Kweli and Styles P. On “The Mathematics,” the two veteran lyricists get down on a jazzy beat by collective member HenryDaher and drop bars about the music industry and how the two have navigated through the detractors to arrive in a place where they are able to create their own surroundings. With no real hook, the song is an unadulterated serving of straight-up knowledge. Taste part of the rainbow below.
