With the artwork, tracklist and release date (Apr. 23) for Prisoner of Conscious now revealed, Talib Kweli shares another sample of his forthcoming fifth solo album. With its eerie synths and chilling bassline, “Upper Echelon” is far from anything we’ve heard from the BK MC before, but that’s not to say he doesn’t flow with usual ease. The video, meanwhile, features some trippy split-screen effects and includes cameos from Kweli’s partner-in-rhyme Yaasin Bey and comedian Affion Crockett.
