Talib Kweli has released numerous projects this year including a surprise mixtape with Fuck the Money.
Recently speaking to HipHopDX in the wake of a recent Complex article that characterized Kweli as one who doesn’t produce music for all moods, the New York native announced he’s working on a new album with producer 9th Wonder and also revealed the features on the project.
“I’ve got an album with 9th Wonder coming out,” he explained via a segment of today’s (September 28) DX Daily. “That album’s got myself, Brother Ali, Hi-Tek, Krysis, Bad Lucc, Problem, Rapsody, Planet Asia, Niko, Pharoahe Monch, Slug from Atmosphere, I’m really, really happy about the place I’m in creatively.”
No release date or title for the project has been named yet publicly.
