Talib Kweli

Talib Kweli already released an album this year -- the free-to-download Fuck the Money -- and now he already has another one on the way. It's a collaborative LP with producer 9th Wonder, and it's set to feature Brother Ali, Hi-Tek, Krysis, Bad Lucc, Problem, Rapsody, Planet Asia, Niko, Pharoahe Monch, and Slug from Atmosphere. Release date and title are still TBA.

Talib also has dates coming up. One is with a live band in NYC on October 5 at the Blue Note, and that includes both early (8 PM) and late (10:30 PM) shows. Then he DJs late-night at Webster Hall on October 8, which is presumably part of Just Blaze's weekly House Party at the venue (tickets).

Some of Talib's upcoming Australian dates are as Black Star, his duo with Mos Def. (Why not in the US?!) Though Mos Def is going by Yasiin Bey these days, he recently revived his old moniker for a track with Ski Beatz, "Sensei On The Block." Listen to that, with the list of Talib Kweli and Black Star dates, below...
