Talib Kweli and Raekwon Go Bar for Bar in ‘Violations’ Video

Veteran rhyme-slingers Talib Kweli and Raekwon spit hardcore rhymes in their new video for ‘Violations,’ which premiered on MTV Jams today (May 15). The Thaddeus Dixon-produced banger is from Kweli’s latest album, ‘Gravitas.’

In the clip, helmed by fellow rapper R.A. the Rugged Man, Rae and Kweli are being questioned by police for busting murder raps on fake rappers. The dynamic duo go bar for bar while getting their mugshots taken and while chilling in an interrogation room.

“It’s the champion flow, the Jordan, LeBron and Kobe / The Obi Wan Kenobi, of getting that guap-a-mole,” boasts Kweli.

His partner-in-rhyme Raekwon also drops some sharp lyrics as well.

“Rough as alligator skin / Getting crazy grip / I’m so amazing with words, I make a baby spit / Resting in Tibet, wild with the Gillette,” he raps.

Overall, Kweli and Rae’s ‘Violations’ is a great performance video showcasing two MCs whose flows are so crazy “it’s adderall with the padded walls.”
