Reflection Eternal Drops First New Album in 10 Years! Revolutions per Minute Available NOW!

May 18, 2010

From the lovely folks at Fusicology (what’s good, Simon??) – I just had to re-post for all the RE fans. We rinsed a few of the tracks on teh show last night, but you NEED to check out the full album to get a feel for how the duo has grown…

After 10-years since their classic contribution Train of Thought sealed their fates in hip-hop lore, Talib Kweli and Hi-Tek are releasing their follow-up venture Revolutions Per Minute May 18 on Blacksmith/Warner Bros. Records. With their first collaboration praised for its uplifting messages and nostalgic soundscape, Kweli’s command of the mic and Hi-Tek’s versatile production skills have made this album one of the most anticipated hip-hop albums of 2010.

Exclusively produced by Hi-Tek, features on the album include appearances by Estelle, Bilal, Bun B, Mos Def, Jay Electronica, J. Cole, Res and Chester French. The album covers an array of topics that discuss the shortcomings of America (“Strangers”), society’s obsession with fame (“Got Work”), an honest discussion of drug use (“Lift’in Off”), the pining for a lover returning home (“Midnight Hour”), a music history lesson (“In the Red”), and even a track about Nigeria’s corruption-riddled oil business (“Black Gold”).

Be sure to pick up Reflection Eternal’s highly anticipated, critically acclaimed LP “Revolutions Per Minute”, in stores today!
