Talib Kweli has new music out and on the way! A new project titled, “Talib Kweli and Diamond D Are Gotham“. An album that unites two celebrated, decorated and historic artists. The duo recently appeared together on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, and during that appearance Talib also discussed the release of his new book, Vibrate Higher, a firsthand account of Hip-Hop as a political force.
One of the first well-known producers to ever show me love in this suit business was legend Diamond . I was raised on his music. From his solo work to the incredible contributions he’s made on albums of others like Big L, Yassin Bey, ATCQ, Fat Joe, Fugees and many others. As a Bronx native, his sound represents the best, most original Hip-Hop in the world.
My City, in the DC Universe, Gotham is located somewhere in New Jersey. But in real life, the Gotham from the Batman comics is 100% based in New York City. New York City was nicknamed Githam before Batman was created, and this Gotham project is dedicated to old New York.Talib on working with Diamond D & his new Gotham Project.
Diamond D, has created timeless music for his D.I.T.C. crew, Fugees, Busta Rhymes, Snoop Dogg, Xzibit, Raekwon, Rapsody, Pharoahe Monch, Fat Joe, and his own certifiable classic debut, Stunts, Blunts & Hip-Hop.
