Talib Kweli hasn’t announced a release date or many details for his forthcoming mixtape, Northern Lights Southern Smoke, just yet. But so far it’s sounding like its title, cover art, and leaks are telling of what we can expect. The latest track to leak, “Accountable,” features the Brooklyn native linking with West Coast spitters Strong Arm Steady and Chace Infinite. But instead of going in over, say, a G-funk production or anything linked to Cali, they’re treated to a Lex Luger-esque beat from Eightoeight. The result is a messy misstep that hopefully doesn’t mean we’re in for a disappointment from Kweli, who just dropped off a pretty solid indie album, Gutter Rainbows.
