'Liberation' Sequel From Talib Kweli & Madlib To Be Released Next Month

Together once more, Talib Kweli and Madlib are getting ready to release a follow-up to their collaborative album Liberation from 2007.

Liberation 2 will be released in a special fashion, much like the previous album, which was made available as a free download from Stones Throw’s Rappcats website. The initiative won’t be made available on common streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music; instead, it will only be accessible on the paid podcast network Luminary.

Talib and Madlib have been working on the record for the past ten years, according to a press statement.

“This album was written, recorded and mixed over 10 years,” Talib said. “It’s expansive in concept but tight in its substance and approach. People today are taking stock of what is most important – family, health, wellness, love.

“The materialism and debauchery that is stereotypically associated with Hip Hop has lost some of its luster,” he continued. “Madlib and I have been consistent in our messaging. Never has there been a better time for such honest, message-driven music that pays tribute to the sounds that came before us.”

He added: “Our partnership with Luminary allows us to retain ownership, allowing us to create an exclusive experience for listeners. I’m excited to be at the forefront of Luminary’s foray into the music space, and we have a chance to change the industry for the better with the release of this album.”


The duo released their first track from the album before its March 6 release. Amani, Talib’s kid, is featured on “After These Messages.”
