Talib KweliRapper Talib Kweli is set to release "Right About Now...," his new album with 12 all new tracks and featuring guests Mos Def, Jean Grae, Planet Asia and more. The set drops November 22nd, 2005 and the first singles "Who Got It," and "Fly That Knot" are out 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.
