Talib Kweli - Distractions | Upcoming Album "Prisoner of Conscious"

Talib Kweli releases the first single,"Distractions" off of his forthcoming solo album,"Prisoner of Conscious". Prisoner of conscience (POC) is a term defined in Peter Benenson's 1961 article "The Forgotten Prisoners" often used by the human rights group Amnesty International. It can refer to anyone imprisoned because of their race, religion, or political views. It also refers to those who have been imprisoned and/or persecuted for the non-violent expression of their conscientiously-held beliefs. Clever, meaningful, modern title for an album. I love this track. I love Talib and what he's got to say. In an ocean full of dolphins pretending to be sharks he's a shark disguised as a dolphin - smarter, sharper, underrated, and underestimated...
