More than 10 years since their classic contribution Train of Thought sealed their fates in hip-hop lore, Talib Kweli and Hi-Tek are releasing their follow-up venture Revolutions Per Minute this May. This album one of the most anticipated hip-hop albums of 2010.
The Source Magazine gave “Revolutions Per Minute” an early 4 mic review in their March 2010 issue stating that, “While Train of Thought placed Hip-Hoppers into a soulful, spiritual trance that could be
likened to Tribe’s Low End Theory, Revolutions Per Minute adopts a modern Public Enemy timbre with lyrical grace and production that doesn’t alienate.”
Aside from the denotative meaning—the number of times a record can go around on a record player—Talib Kweli explains the title is two-fold: “It’s the idea of revolution through music. It’s the idea that people in today’s culture take things in YouTube-sized bites and clips and if it’s not in a clip or a soundbite or something that you can fit in under a minute, people don’t pay attention to it. The idea is: How many revolutions can you get accomplished in under a minute in a quick culture?
Exclusively produced by Hi-Tek, the album features guest appearances by Estelle, Bilal, Bun B, Mos Def, Jay Electronica, J. Cole, Res and Chester French.
Dont miss the reunited, Reflection Eternal hitting the road this summer to spread their horn-heavy
gospel to the masses.
