Talib Kweli Speaks On His Next Album "Prisoner Of Conscious,” Possible Black Star LP

Talib Kweli says Nelly will be featured on the "Prisoner Of Conscious” first single, reveals that a Black Star album is not yet in the works.

Brooklyn rapper Talib Kweli shared some news about his next solo album Prisoner Of Conscious during a radio interview with BootlegKev.com. Kweli revealed that the album will feature appearances from Mos Def, Kendrick Lamar, Maino, Curren$y and more.

“My next single features Nelly. It’s pretty much done. I’m trying to tweak it right now,” Kweli revealed.

Kweli, who upset a few Hip Hop elitists when he released a song featuring Gucci Mane last year, explained that he isn’t really bothered by the overly critical comments anymore.

“It gets less frustrating as I get older…When you’re past 30 and you’re still hating or you’re still mad at some little kid cause he’s more successful then you. And you 35 years old and used to rap and some 20-year-old is rapping now and you mad at him cause he don’t have the technical skills you deem as important in Hip Hop. That’s corny,” Kweli explained.

As far as a possible Black Star album is concerned Kweli revealed that there’s nothing in the works at the moment, but he wouldn’t be against putting out an album sometime in the future.

“Albums are an organic process ya know,” Kweli explained. “To be real, people don’t buy albums like that. If I’m a fan I’m more excited about seeing the show. If there’s some music that comes out of it that’ll be good. It’s not like we have anything in the works right now for a Black Star album.”

Kweli also spoke on the tragic passing of British singer Amy Winehouse over the weekend.

“It’s extremely sad. Amy Winehouse went way before her time,” said the rapper. “Being on Twitter and being in the digital age, social networking – people make a lot of snide and borderline rude comments about when celebrities pass away…People have to be responsible for they habits and their lifestyles, but a drug problem is in fact a medical issue. Who are we to judge?”

    Yo Gucci Mane murked Talib Kweli for real. Talib Kweli is lucky to even work for a legend like Gucci Mane. Gucci been rapping since Moses parted the red sea. Fuck all the haters. Gucci been killing the rap game forever. Bow down to Gucci! Fuck Talib Kweli and Fuck Nelly too. That band-aid nigga now making songs about dreaming like a girl? A sonic ring? a beach? WTF is that shit? Nigga must be on some Charles Hamilton shit. Fuck him and Charles Hamilton as well. Soft ass nigga. Gucci and Bieber will crush their opponents. It's Gucci Time!

    I fuck wit Talib's music, but I just don't get where he's coming from. He has already established himself as an "elitist" rapper who hates wack niggas, now he's embracing all of them. Like somebody has already pointed out... Talib can get away from the "conscious" label by working with niggas who don't fall into that category... but are not WACK!

  • Mattaveli

    Nothing wrong about working with mainstream artists. But why it gotta be the absolute whackest ones you could imagine?

  • Obi Patrick

    Gucci Mane now Nelly my nigga? Out of all the possible people to work with in Hip Hop he chooses the N-Sync ass nigga to put on the first single. Funnily this is the same dude that jumped on that "Wack Niggas" track with Common and Kanye, all my hope now rests with the vets and J Cole...

    never got that term conscious as a hiphop term? everybody is conscious of what the fuck they saying. just some people have different values, intelligence and what not. Do what you feel you gotta do bruh. I got albums of the Kweli I like to listen to.

  • TREE

    Talib been a BUM. Hi-Tek dropped him. Mos ditched him. Kanye hired all his friends. Now Talib gotta ride Mac Miller's dick, and be an industry herb that likes everything and everyone. Talib kind of revolutionized the non-confrontational herbal wheat grass rapper. Talib is not a main eventer. Never will be. Keep living off that Jay-Z line, Jay thinks Cold Play is genius. Kweli fans, get mad in your flip flops. I would step on your foot and spit in your face. Prisoner? Dog, you're parents were white washed rich folk. I never liked this stink nigga. Got slapped by his woman at a 50 Cent party, his biggest hit.

      Too deep? Maybe for your lame ass. The fact that you call Talib's lyrics ''deep'' speaks volumes about your intelligence. There's nothing ''deep'' about him. Everything he's trying to say is obvious as fuck.

    • Suggamatic

      awww what's the matter are kweli's raps to deep for you ;_;?

    • KnewBalance

      what is it that you have done? you make music or are your only lyrics here on a feed responding to someone else' video?

    • HipHop

      LMAO at that last sentence. Hahahaha, the thing is, it was true.

  • R.Pgh

    did he say his new single is with Nelly? The guy with the band-aid face? uhhh, did I miss something here.....

    I love how he fucks up all those people's hopes who declared him as one of the realest rappers to ever grace the mic. So nice to see all those faggots getting mad. Make your moves, Talib. You dropped enough classics.
