(November
2, 2005) New York, NY — KOCH Records and Blacksmith Music announce the
release of a new CD by talented MC Talib Kweli
. Entitled Right About Now…, the album has 12 brand new tracks. Right About
Now…
features Jean Grae, Mos Def,
Papoose and more, and will be released on November 22nd, 2005. The
first singles, “Who Got It,” produced by Kareem Riggs, and “Fly
That Knot” are reacting simultaneously at urban radio right now.

 

Kweli
states, “Right About Now
sums
up this project. Usually when my music comes out, the people hear where I was a
year ago. This project represents where I am right now.”

 

Talib
Kweli is currently co-headlining The Breed Love Odyssey Tour
(sponsored by PlayStation and House of Blues) with
Mos Def. The national tour continues through the end of the year and also
features Jean Grae, Pharoahe Monch and Medina Green.

 

Kweli
is a member of legendary groups Black Star (with Mos Def) and Reflection
Eternal (with super producer Hi-Tek) as well as a successful solo artist, and
has established himself as one of the most skilled artists in hip-hop today.
Kweli ranks among the most respected MCs in the game – even garnering reverence
from multi-platinum artist Jay-Z in his song “Moment of Clarity” on
the platinum release The Black Album
.

 

With
lyrics that range from the classic battle rap to emotionally charged, socially
conscious commentary, Kweli is an intelligent wordsmith who has the knack for
bridging the gaps between hip-hop fans of all types. With the respect of his
colleagues and hip-hop fans around the world, this new release is sure to be a
favorite.
