Talib Kweli ft. Res – What’s Real (Video)



Although the BK MC shouts out Brooklyn, Biggie, Jordan and Mike Tyson, this track has southern appeal and would blend nicely with Jay-Z / UGK collaboration “Big Pimpin'”, which shows Kweli’s versatility, but he doesn’t pimp on this track, he drops gems. The video is dope and Res does her thing at the end.

Talib Kweli ft. Res – What’s Real is off the Gravitas LP, which can be purchased on vinyl, CD or digitally, at Kweliclub.com.

Idle Warship “Driving Me Insane” [Official Video]


Res has this “sexy psycho-chick” vibe goin’ on in this video. Certainly got my attention! This beat is crazy. Part Reggae, part Hip Hop, 100% Rock N Roll, I’m pretty sure we’ll be seeing this one on MTV, VH1 & BET soon, not just your neighborhood YouTube Channel. To me, Idle Warship is an alternative to Jay-Z and R. Kelly’s “Best of Both Worlds”. Kweli, Res and the band really blends genres in a way that’s always fresh and exciting. The mostly “green-screen” video was directed by none other than R.A the Rugged Man. (‘Stanley Kubrik’ indeed.)

Idle Warship’s album Habits of the Heart has features from Jean Grae, Jay Knocka, Chester French, Michelle Williams & John Forte.

Catch them soon on the Prisoner of Conscious tour!

Talib Kweli: Burn Notice – Prod. By RZA (Live Video)

Talib Kweli

Produced by RZA off Talib Kweli’s upcoming solo album, Talib rocks live at Trousdale. This got me hype to hear the track. Can’t wait for that album to drop. Meanwhile, check out Kweli and Res (Idle Warship) live @ Southpaw, if you are in Brooklyn NY this Friday, Dec. 9th. (After the show, head across the street and catch me spinnin’ at The Red Light District @ VooDoo Sports Lounge – shameless self-promotion.)

Res + Talib Kweli = Idle Warship


Singer/Songwriter Res and MC Talib Kweli will be releasing their debut album Habits Of The Heart as Idle Warship on October 24th. Check out the first single “Laser Beams”. I like when Kweli rhymes over this kind of drum pattern (check out Midnight Hour with Estelle). Been a fan of Res for awhile, since I saw one of her performances a few years ago. Her music is dope. I have been waiting for her to break through to a wider audience and get the props she deserves. Pretty smart move for the both of them and the single knocks! Two great artists come together and form a cross genre group. Support Idle Warship when it drops!
