Talib Kweli ‘Gutter Rainbows’ LP out on January 25th | Official Tracklist


Talib Kweli takes “a trip back to childhood while marking the newest stage in his long and dynamic career” on new album Gutter Rainbows, confirmed for release on January 25th through Javotti Media/3D.

Extensive collaborations see the likes of Ski Beatz, 88-Keys, M-Phazes, Marco Polo, Oh No, S-1 and 6th Sense crafting the soundscape of Gutter Rainbows, whilst Jean Grae, Kendra Ross, Outasight and Sean Price are among featured guests to join Talib on the mic.

“As a boy growing up in Brooklyn, Kweli saw gutters that ran with dirt, oil and water, revealing a shimmering rainbow to his child’s eyes. Drawing its title from this memory, this album puts at the raw center what his music has been doing for years: finding and preserving the beautiful in the hideous; the rainbows in the gutter.”
