Reflection Eternal is back! Stream Talib Kweli and Hi-Tek's full 'Revolutions Per Minute' album here

reflection-eternalReflection Eternal, the duo formed by Brooklyn rapper Talib Kweli and Cincinnati producer Hi-Tek, was once one of indie hip-hop’s leading lights. Kweli (pictured, left) and Hi-Tek (right) have worked together here and there since Reflection Eternal’s acclaimed 2000 debut, but it’s taken a decade for them to regroup for their second full album. Wait no longer: Reflection Eternal’s Revolutions Per Minute arrives in stores this Tuesday, May 18 (pre-order link) — and you can stream the whole thing exclusively at the Music Mix right now.

Hit the jump to hear Revolutions Per Minute in its entirety for free (some NSFW language), including collaborations with Estelle, Bun B, Mos Def, Jay Electronica, and J. Cole. (The last three show up together on super-posse cut “Just Begun.” Now that’s just showing off.) Give it a spin and let us know what you think.
