Close to a year after the release of his “Attack The Block” mix­tape, Talib Kweli deliv­ers his per­son­al fifth stu­dio album,

“Pris­on­er of Con­scious” orite hip-hop albums, from Andre 3000’s “Love Below” or “The Mise­du­ca­tion of Lauryn Hill,” those are hip-hop love albums,”  Talib states,  “I feel like when people talk about real life emo­tions and real life feel­ings they res­on­ate longer, longer than rap­pers who talk about gang­ster­ism, sex and viol­ence and longer than rap­pers who  just talk about hip-hop, how real they are how and how under­ground they are. I wanted to make an album that really spoke to the lives that people are liv­ing.”

Billboard.com  is exclus­ively stream­ing the album “Pris­on­er of Con­scious” Check it out here.
