(GEMS RADIO)—Talib Kweli and Madlib have announced a joint album called Liberation 2. The new album was not released on streaming services instead it was released only on Luminary, a subscription-based podcast network.

Roy Ayers, Q-Tip, and Westside Gunn all appear on the project, which includes a posthumous feature from Mac Miller. The album has been in the works for over ten years. Talib says, “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.”

The first single called “After These Messages” features Talib Kweli’s son, Amani.
