A new CD is on the way from Talib Kweli titled Right About Now... The new album is the result of a deal struck by Kweli’s label, Blacksmith Music (http://www.allhiphop.com/hiphopnews/?ID=5014#) and KOCH.
The album contains all new songs (http://www.allhiphop.com/hiphopnews/?ID=5014#) and features appearances by Mos Def (http://www.allhiphop.com/hiphopnews/?ID=5014#), Jean Grae, Pappose and others and features the singles “Who Got It” and “Fly That Knot.”

"Right About Now... sums up this project,” Kweli said. “Usually when my music comes out, the people hear where I was a year ago. This project represents where I am right now."

In recent press releases, the album was billed as being released through a deal Kweli inked with Warner Music Group. Despite the shift in labels, the album will still be released on Nov. 22.

The track listing for Right About Now...

1. Right About Now
2. Drugs, Basketball & Rap (http://www.allhiphop.com/hiphopnews/?ID=5014#) feat. Planet Asia & Phil The Agony
3. Who Got It
4. Fly That Knot
5. Ms. Hill
6. Flash Gordon
7. Supreme Supreme feat. Mos Def
8. The Beast feat. Papoose
9. Roll Of Me
10. Rock On
11. Where Ya Gonna Run (Jean Grae feat. Talib Kweli)
12. Two & Two

Sounds promising, hopefully it will be better than his last. Good to see him and Mos back on a track together.

I'm a Kweli fan buts it kinda funny about the "where I'm at right now" vs a year later because Supreme Supreme has been leaked for some time now. I've had it on my computer for a while. Nevertheless I'm still gonna grab the record when it drops.

Kweli is dope...........but the BEAUTIFUL STRUGGLE was one of the worst albums of all-time (for a dude as talented as KWELI to drop such shit)......it fuckin sucked, and along with METHOD MAN"S TICAL 0 PREQUEL are the two most dissapointing hip hop albums of all time

.......I think KWELI relises this and hopefully he will bring it back

Where did you hear this???

Also, I have a bad feeling about this album for some reason.....I didn't like Beautiful Struggle either.....but I loved Reflection Eternal and Quality

I thought he was coming out with another Reflection Eternal album with Hi-Tek?

This nigga must live in the studio. Whats up with Mos they need to bang out another blackstar album. If the Fugee can reunite then I know they can.

yup! there it is. and beautiful struggle is better than what ya'll are saying. it had some good tracks (going hard, i try, the ghetto, we know, black girl pain). It's hard to make follow up records after you drop classics like Blackstar and Reflection Eternal. I'm still looking forward to this, but I'd rather see a Blackstar CD (hopefully it's in the works). If Blackstar does come out with another album Mos better emcee instead of sing. Why, after making a classic CD with him, doesn't Kweli use Hi-Tek? Anyways, I'm ranting on, but I'm real excited about all this, plus I'm going to see Blackstar, Jean Grae, and Pharoahe Monch in concert in a month from today. AAAAAAAHH

Definitely looking forward to this Talib Kweli. With Papoose and Mos Def on there you cant loose. I agree, Beautiful Struggle was a good album, not better than his other albums but compared to the other shit being released it was

how do u say a BEAUTIFUL STRUGGLE WAS WEAK YEAH SURE I WASN'T AS GOOD AS QUALITY BUT NEVER THE LESS A DOPE ALBUM MAN TO QUOTE JAY-Z "DO PEOPLE JUST LISTEN TO MUSIC OR DO THEY JUST SKIM THROUGH IT"
