“Lost Tape”-esque compilations are a revered part of Hip-Hop lure and Talib Kweli slipped in the mix late last night Train of Thought: Lost Lyrics, Rare Releases & Beautiful B-Sides Vol.1.
Talib Kweli has been blazing mics since the late 90s which leaves a lot of cutting room material out there. In other words, the Brooklyn MC’s table scraps would be a Thanksgiving dinner for the average rapper. The second Train of Thought features guest appearances from Kanye West, Common, Consequence and his favorite producer Hi-Tek, among others.
Back on the classic 2004 album, The College Dropout, Kanye West openly admitted that touring with Talib Kweli made his that much better as a MC, so the track “Wack Ni***z” makes this project worth sampling at the least.
