In love with the kid because he’s underground

The 3o hour dance party continues: #30AssShakers30Hours

Talib Kweli is so talented. His voice is distinctive, his flow is clear. Both his parents worked at a university, his mother was a professor and his father was an administrator, so you know education was a priority growing up. I was so moved by his song, the Manifesto, that I did an entire blog post about the song complete with the lyrics for the last verse.

Reflection Eternal is a collaboration between Talib and Hi Tek and their album, Revolutions per Minute came out last year. It’s a great album, I highly recommend you purchase it in it’s entirety, preferably from a record store. This song, featuring Estelle is a favorite. So retro and modern at the same time. And I love the art direction and styling of the video, they both look so sharp.
