start recognizing your privileges, before they start weaponizing these lyricists
Talib Kweli and Styles P, two of our wisest and most respected OG’s, come together for their new project, The Seven. America has been filthy with racism since its inception, but we’re living through a real renaissance of vile bigotry at the moment, and I don’t think there’s a Rap fan living who wasn’t expecting these guys to speak up. The duo drop gem after shiny gem on tracks like “Brown Guys”, which features a Kweli verse that feels like it could’ve been assembled from any number of the deadly tweets he fires off daily, and the visceral “In The Field,” a 5-minute long discourse full of ether for AmeriKKKa. This whole project is full of insane verses and guests Jadakiss, Sheek Louch, NIKO IS, Rapsody and Common all come as correct as you would expect.
