Welcome to the Prisoner of Conscious

from Talib Kweli – Upper Echelon Lyrics on Rap Genius


Prisoner of Conscious is Talib Kweli’s fifth studio album, on which this song appears, slated for a May 7, 2013 release.

The album is titled as such because of his career being hindered by the “conscious rapper” label. While enjoying critical acclaim, commercial success has never come close to matching his level of talent, instead turning listeners off whenever they discover his deeper lyrical themes and, again, “conscious” label.
