In an industry full of underachievers, you can count on Talib Kweli to come with that Upper Echelon sh*t. Fresh off claiming the top spot on the DJBooth’s Top Indie Chart with his recently-released Push Thru (Marco Polo Remix), the Northeastern mainstay joins forces with Harry Fraud for his latest single, a mordant critique of the contemporary rap game.
