Talib Kweli and Blu Showcase Supreme Lyrical Skill on ‘Fight Night’

to TheBoombox on

Lyricists Talib Kweli and Blu teamed up on the punchy track “Fight Night,” produced by Canadian production duo K-Salaam & Beatnick.

Over a thumping beat, strings, stabbing keyboards, Talib and Blu spit bars about the art lyricism. On his stream-on-conscious verse, Talib vows to stay humble and create music to inspire. “Started from the bottom to the top / I promise to keep climbing till I own it and now I got it / Giving birth to the death machines, like Sarah Connor,” he raps.

Meanwhile, Blu delivers lyrical punches on his verse chastising other MCs who don’t use their gift properly. “You n—-s need a new direction in life / Following lights / Got the blind leading the blind / Like three blind mice / I change lives with what I leave on the mic,” he asserts.

Beatnick & K​ ​Salaam’s compilation album Bluest Flame will arrive in stores on Oct. 22. The collection features guest appearances from Tech N9ne, Joellz Ortiz, Bun B, Young Buck, Fashion and and more. You can pre-order the album now on iTunes.
