Artist Spotlight - Idle Warship

It appears that any group that Talib Kweli is associated with becomes a Supergroup. First, Talib, Mos Def, and Hi-Tek made a classic with Black Star. Then, he and Hi-Tek went the duo route and blessed us with Reflection Eternal. This time he must've just said "Fuck It, I wanna do some new shit!" So he, soul singer Res, and singer/rapper Graph Nobel formed the collective known as Idle Warship. I've been a fan ever since I heard Industry Diary and it seems like they keep putting out hot music. Some of it is party music (Black Snake Moan), some is hip-hop (Fall Back), and some is non-classifiable HOT SHIT (Screamin' feat. MC Chris.) The video for Black Snake Moan recently dropped and it seems like they have a lot of fun with this group. The album should be dropping soon so make sure you check them out.
