Idle Warship: Talib Kweli & Res

 Idle Warship

You may have been hearing about Idle Warship, especially the OK Playa’s, but for those discovering this now, long term collaborators Talib Kweli and Res have put together a new duo Idle Warship. The genre mashing project has Talib singing and rapping, and Res rapping and singing – which I believe only works in Res’ case, but talib makes an effort. Kweli only seems to sing occasionally, so I think we’re safe.

The greatest thing to see here is the return of Res, a very talented lady who’s unfortunately been missing in action for quite some time – at least on record.  Res has been living out in Los Angeles, doing shows quite frequently, and is part of a band called Fleetwood Black (co-based in Toronto with Graph Nobel).
