Das Racist x Talib Kweli – ‘The Actual’ (Prod. Amaze 88) | New Music

It’s new NYC meets old NYC today as stylistic Queens reps Das Racist team up with veteran Brooklyn-bred lyricist Talib Kweli for “The Actual”. Occupying turf somewhere between traditional East Coast boom bap and new wave erraticism (think MF DOOM), Amaze 88‘s instrumental serves as the meeting point for Kool A.D. and Heems‘ off-kilter rhymes with Kweli’s masterful delivery.

This welcome number is plucked from Eastern District‘s new compilation mixtape, MOSHOLU, which is available to download for free here. The KickDrums, Res and Spank Rock also feature on the project, in case Das Racist and Talib Kweli don’t quite do it for you.
