Talib Kweli shared this about the album: “About 3-4 years ago I was visiting yasiin in Europe and we started to talk about songs to do on an album, so I flew an engineer out just to see what that would be. Once I realized this conversation is starting to organically become a creative conversation, I started making sure to have the engineer around at all times. There was one day we were just in a hotel listening to Madlib beats, and he’s like “Play that Madlib tape again.” I’m playing the beats and he starts doing rhymes to the beats. And that’s how we did the first song.”
The one song you can hear that’s not exclusive to the Luminary site is the track opener “O.g.”.
It only took a couple of decades for them to release their follow up album. Here’s to hoping the next one takes them, Talib Kweli and Yasiin Bey, less than a quarter of a century to complete.
