Buck: The Original Book Soundtrack consists of 12 tracks, including “Godz N The Hood” featuring Bishop Lamont, Rass Kass and Talib Kweli. Pieces from poets Maya Angelou and Amiri Baraka are also set to be on the digital release.
“Buck, the memoir is important not just for its scope and passion,” Kweli told AllHipHop, “but for the author’s refusal to apologize for existing.
“The accompanying soundtrack allows you to engulf yourself in this world,” Kweli adds. “When you do, you realize that this work of art is not just important, but necessary.”
To commemorate the one-year anniversary of the paperback release of Buck, Buck: The Original Book Soundtrack will be released May 13 as a free digital download on MKAsante.com and KweliClub.com.
