Talib Kweli Recruits Big K.R.I.T., Curren$y & Kendra Ross for ‘Everywhere I Go’
Most times in hip-hop, like-minded artists tend to jump on the same track together, either based on a similar artistic approach or other reasons, which is probably why Talib Kweli recruited Big K.R.I.T. and Curren$y for the song 'Everywhere I Go,' also featuring singer Kendra Ross.
The song is on Javotti Media's new mixtape 'The Cathedral,' and Spitta Andretti goes first, and borrows a line from Kweli's verse on the Black Star song 'Respiration.'
"For not knowing the ways you can be capped like a NBA salary / Lives taken haphazardly, them sons of bitches is bastards, G / That's why I be high B, so don't ask me why I'm not speaking, n---- / Just ain't counting no money up with ya," he rhymes.
Talib goes next, and uses a masterful double-time flow -- made famous by the southern MCs -- and does it so well he could have easily been raised below the Mason-Dixon Line.
"Across the water or across the border, see my second line deep like I'm from New Orleans / You a snitch n---- type that will call the law / before the slaughter I get my thoughts in order," he spits over what sounds like a Curtis Mayfield sample.
K.R.I.T. smashes it too, and arguably has the best verse out of the three. "I rose from the South with the mind to get paid / Cup and some drink got me stuck in my ways / Living life trying to catch me a wave / In the same state where they used to wholesale slaves," he cleverly spits.
Javotti's 'The Cathedral' is out now and is available for free download.
