TALIB & MADLIB COLLABO – thestreetsonline.com


Story by: Rebecca Raber
Talib Kweli has joined forces with Madlib for Liberation, a new nine-song collaborative album. On New Year’s Day this hip-hop holy grail became available for free and legal download at Rappcats.com. The site is not only hosting the zip file that contains all the music, but also features the album’s Abu Ghraib-inspired cover art that can be downloaded and printed. This is quite a way to kick off 2007 for Kweli, who will also be releasing his latest solo album this year. Eardrum was previously expected in late ’06, but will now hit shelves later this month via Kweli’s own Blacksmith imprint at Warner Bros.
