Talib Kweli Partners With Elizhi and Phonte for ‘No Competition’

Jamla Is the Squad

Rappers Talib Kweli, Elzhi and Phonte form like Voltron and give you hard-hitting bars on ‘No Competition,’ a track from the upcoming mixtape, ‘Jamla Is the Squad.’

Jamla Records is producer 9th Wonder’s record label and home of indie-rap darlings Rapsody, Big Remo, the Away Team and many others.

On the Khrysis-produced ‘No Competition,’ Kweli, Elzhi and Phonte effortlessly deliver braggadocio rhymes with no catchy choruses in between.

“Y’all n—-s just be off with no centerfolds / Y’all n—-s are softer than some dinner rolls / ‘Te, this fake n—-s have been exposed,” raps Kweli.

Then Elzhi throws some upper-cut rhymes to weak rappers who have sorry flows and sad hooks.

Phontigallo brings it home with his closing verse, spitting, “We should have did this s— a long time ago / ‘Cause every single line, every rhyme I wrote / Is nothing but opiates, stimulants, yeah n—-, all kinds of dope.”

He then adds, “Don’t need a track for that bottom feeder rap / You n—-s are plain, son / An A-K to a paint gun / Competition n—-, there ain’t none…at all.”

No competition, indeed.

‘Jamla Is the Squad,’ hosted by Statik Selektah, drops Jan. 28.
