Talib Kweli was interviewd by MTV’s The Hive earlier this week, and in between providing commentary on Idle Warship (whose Habits Of The Heart is available now), Spin Magazine (“…it’s hard for a black rapper to get love in Spin; especially a black rapper who is talking about the struggle.”) and Herman Cain (“[He] is Bizarro Obama. He’s the flip side; he lives in an alternate universe. The thing about Cain… he’s just not a serious thinker.”) he added this tidbit:
“I am working to put out a Black Star project for people to buy sometime next year.”
Let’s see if that holds any weight in music’s notoriously fickle world. I’d like to see it happen, however.
