If you go here, you’ll find that Talib Kweli and Madlib have put up a free LP called Liberation (direct download)– burn it, they urge you; they even go all out and provide a PDF with the cover. What kind of tomfoolery is this? Free good music for the masses?! Nooo! Don’t you just love hip hop?
Did I mention this is actually a very well produced piece- no blips anywhere. In this age of restrictions, you have to wonder, at least I have to wonder, who do I choose to promote in this blog. Is it just the content that matters, regardless of how many restrictions you have to promote that content? Or is it the artists behind the content and how they choose to make their music available to as large an audience as possible?
Here’s a taster.
