For when you’re feeling social

Talib Kweli has released a video for his single “All of Us” featuring Jay Electronica and Yummy Bingham, from his Radio Silence album. Talib Kweli is one of the most socially and politically aware rappers of the last 20 years. The Brooklyn-native, after earning his stripes long ago as one of the best MCs in the business, stands as one of the worlds most accomplished hip-hop artists, previously as one-half of Black Star with Mos Def or doing his own thing collaborating with Kanye West, Pharrell, J Dilla, or Madlib.

All of Us is lyrically profound:

Every problem can’t be solved at the ballot box
We unifying Africa like Gaddafi, that’s what got Malcolm shot
They out to stop anybody with knowledge that figured out the plot
On the balcony like Martin Luther King, I been to the mountaintop
The blue wall of silence, it’s really the blue wall of violence                                                                                             

The good cops who retire and get fired
They screaming black on black as an excuse for you to not care
‘Til the cops roll up in their SWAT gear

Master T sat down with Talib on RX Music to talk about everything from staying relevant and the new state of hip- hop, to his style over the years and the changes that come with maturity. Watch it below!
