|On Reflection Eternal's 2000 album ''Train of Thought,'' Talib Kweli challenged fans, and himself, to ''do what comes naturally.'' After years of recording on mainstream labels, he now has the chance to produce exactly what he wants-and feels he needs-to produce: an album straight from his mouth to the ears of his fans. Invoking the true meaning of MC, Master of Ceremonies, Kweli brings incredible power to his live shows and feeds off the spontaneous energy of his audiences. Being able to interact directly with his audience and the musicians he most respects, he has created an album and a sound that best reproduces that ceremony for his fans. Finally, after serious urgency in the studio, Kweli presents 'Gutter Rainbows,' an album that takes a trip back to childhood while marking the newest stage in his long and dynamic career.As a boy growing up in Brooklyn, Kweli saw gutters that ran with dirt, oil and water, revealing ashimmering rainbow to his child's eyes. Drawing its title from thismemory, this album puts at the raw center what his music has been doing for years: finding and preserving the beautiful in the hideous; the rainbows in the gutter. The autobiographical account features production from Oh No, M-Phazes, Ski Beatz, Marco Polo, Khrysis, S1 and more. With Guest appearances from Jean Grae, Chace Infinite and Sean Price.|
