Friday Freebie: Talib Kweli’s Gutter Rainbows
Growing up in Brooklyn, Kweli saw gutters that ran with dirt, oil and water, revealing a shimmering rainbow to his child’s eyes. Drawing its title from this memory, the album puts at the raw center what Kweli’s music has been doing for years: finding and preserving the beautiful in the hideous; the rainbows in the gutter.
Gutter Rainbows will only be released digitally in North America (and interestingly, in all formats for the rest of the world). With guest features from acts like Outasight and Jean Grae and production from 88-Keys, Ski Beatz and Marco Polo, Gutter Rainbows marks a new stage in the long and ever-evolving career of Talib Kweli.
