Talib Kweli On Kanye West And Jay-Z Album
"I heard a lot of that album and it's f**king dope," he says…
Kanye West and Jay-Z collaborative album Watch The Throne has yet to receive an official release date, but the excitement around the project continues to build.
One of the few people to have heard any of the new material is legendary rapper Tallib Kweli, who has called the album "f**king dope".
He told The Source:
"I heard a lot of that album and its f**king dope. I mean, when Kanye played me that 'H.A.M.' record to me, I like that record. I saw a lot of criticism about that record. It came under a lot of criticism.
"Kanye's an overwhelming presence - that song came out of nowhere, as opposed to a follow-up of his great album.
“I think there'd be less criticism. People would appreciate it. It's a trending record.
"It fits right with what's happening in music and hip-hop and radio right now. And I think their fans are criticizing it want Kanye not to do something so extreme."
