Natural Selection 2.0

All of a sudden, Talib Kweli is everywhere. is offering a free download of Kweli’s latest release, Liberation, a nine-song collaboration with Madlib (via). Kweli also appears on Natural Selection 2.0, a digital-only compilation from Nature Sounds, which released Masta Killa’s overlooked Made in Brooklyn last year. By the looks of it, Natural Selection 2.0 puts together some great collabs, including Pete Rock with Styles P and members of the Wu-Tang Clan, among others.

Someone may string me up from their backpack here, but I’ve never been a huge Kweli guy. Something about his voice bothers me — it’s a little high-pitched and, in this case on Project Jazz, distracts from the looping horn sample.

Now, Viktor Vaughn (aka MF Doom), on the other hand, well, what can you say? He’s like butta, baby.

Buy Natural Selection 2.0 from iTunes.

  1. Kweli is growing on me. With Mos Def in Blackstar I couldn’t get enough of him. Although I did favor Mos Def. On Liberation I can’t tell if its the respect I have for Madlib making me enjoy it or if its Talib actually doing the beats justice. Only time will tell.

    (I did see talib live, and I can’t say much for his live show, hopefully hes a bit more energetic in the future.)
