We’re hyped as hell for this one.
With weeks of promotion ranging from Talib Kweli and 9th Wonder debuting Indie 500‘s lead single, “Every Ghetto,” with Rapsody to from dropping singles “Pay Ya Dues” and “Which Side Are You On,” we finally get the stream of the full album three days ahead of its Friday release.
This is going to be Talib’s third album in four months (following Fuck The Money and Train of Thought), and it’s looking like it’s going to be the best of the stretch. Featuring production from 9th Wonder, Nottz, Khrysis and more, the album additonally has features from Pharoahe Monch, Slug (of Atmostphere), Brother Ali, Rapsody, among plenty others.
9th Wonder talked to The FADER, who premiered the tape:
“We believe in doing the music that we love and getting it to the people that love it, no matter where you are or who you are. That’s the fabric of Kweli, Pharoahe, myself, and everyone involved on this record. That’s the spirit of hip-hop—getting it directly to the people.”
There’s no doubt that’s what Kweli’s been doing for a looooong time: getting music directly to the people. Pre-order Indie 500 on iTunes, and stream it below.
