NEW Talib Kweli Album

He said in XXL ::
“I read The Catcher In The Rye when I was in Europe a few months ago and I didn’t really enjoy, but one thing that I took from it was that reference,” he recalled. “The character actually says ‘gasoline rainbows’ in the book. I was like, ‘Wow.’ I’ve always wanted to call a song ‘Gutter Rainbows’—just because of the rainbows that you see when the oil and the water mix in the gutter—and do a song based on that. I just remember being a little kid and finding beauty in that, and how you have to find beauty in stuff like that when you in the hood. But that reference—him noticing the gasoline rainbows in New York City, and just the character’s love for New York City—are what attracted to me to that phrase. Somebody else got it, so it made me feel like it was more than just a song. Maybe it was an album.”

Ohini Jonez :: Mr. August 26

Found this at KN...Ohini Jonez is back with new joint that I’m sure many up & coming artists can relate to entitled “Mr. August 26th.” Here’s a little back story on the song: “Around my birthday, I was in a DEEP depression,” said Ohini. “Even though we made a lot of moves this year at ABM/Paper Street Music, witnessing other people succeed in the so called real world had me feeling very down, wondering when my ship was gonna come. Those feelings evaporated when I kicked the verse.”
