Talib Kweli Teams Up With Anderson .Paak for ‘Traveling Light’ Video [WATCH]
Directed by The Narcysist, the "Traveling Light" video features cameos from Yasiin Bey, Spike Lee, Q-Tip, Dave Chappelle, Hannibal Buress and more. The visuals also include shots of Talib with everyday people from Brooklyn.
"The video is meant to be a day in my life highlighting how Brooklyn has changed but still remains the same in spirit," the rapper told XXL about his latest visual. "The video is full of friends and family who have been on this life journey with me, with or without the music."
As for the Anderson .Paak collab, Kweli reveals the singer had his choice of different songs but ultimately chose "Traveling Light." He said, "Anderson was given a few choices but chose this song. My lyrics were already there so he wrote the hook around them. I think he was partial to the Kaytranada sound as well."
The song is featured on Talib's newest album, Radio Silence, which is out now. The project features guest appearances from Jay Electronica, Yummy Bingham, Waka Flocka, BJ the Chicago Kid and more.
