• Reflection Eternal


Show: Reflection Eternal Rapper Talib Kweli and producer Hi-Tek, who made Train of Thought as Reflection Eternal in 2000, have “a nearly pathological resistance to repeating themselves, so it’s taken a decade for them to make a proper follow-up,” writes Miles Raymer. “But the upcoming Revolutions Per Minute (on Kweli’s own Blacksmith Records) is a worthy sequel.”
