Today, Talib Kweli releases his eighth album, entitled Radio Silence. The 11-song tracklist features beats from Kaytranada and is absolutely jam-packed with intriguing guest spots. Hip-hop heavies like Rick Ross and the enigmatic Jay Electronica make appearances alongside folks like jazz great Robert Glasper and former Dirty Projector Amber Coffman.
Ahead of the album’s release, Kweli shared “Traveling Light”, his jam with Anderson .Paak as well as “She’s My Hero”, which is a track dedicated to domestic abuse victim Bresha Meadows who killed her father in self-defense last year. Kweli went on Zane Lowe’s radio show earlier this week and discussed the album’s origins as well.
