Talib Kweli Preps Prisoner of Conscious Tour


Talib Kweli is headed back on the road. The Brooklyn MC will promote his forthcoming album with the accompanying Prisoner of Conscious tour kicking-off next month at the Fete Music Ballroom, in Providence, R.I.

Kweli recently dropped the video for the album’s lead single “Distractions.” The Oh No-produced track runs along the lines of much of what we have grown to expect from the Black Star member, and serves as a precursor to the multifaceted tone of the project. His sixth solo effort also features appearances from some of the game’s most respected performers including Busta Rhymes RZA, Curren$y, Kendrick Lamar, and Melania Fiona.

No doubt, the 36-year-old has been heavy in the lab these days, releasing his We Run This, Vol 7 mixtape earlier this week, which includes the Ace Hood-assisted banger, “Let Em In.”

Be on the lookout for the Prisoner of Conscious tour beginning May 18, and the album, which is slated for a summer release.
