Talib Kweli is putting the finishing touches on a new album, Gutter Rainbows. Interestingly, this album will be an independent release, one that will be self-financed. He also added that it would “exist outside of the music industry.” He went on to add that it would be made available to fans soon, a message sent to fans via Twitter.
