I didn’t want that early in my career, I just wanted to make you think I was the best MC.”According to Sha Money XL, fans will love the timeless sound the pair have created from themselves. “It’s been ten years since they’ve been together so I felt this was a great way for them to reunite,” Sha Money XL told AllHipHop.com. “People will love Kweli’s sound with Hi-Tek over the production they remember him from in the earlier part of his career.”The album is due in stores May 11 on Blacksmith/Dream Big Ventures with distribution by The Orchard.
