Talib Kweli's oft-delayed fifth album, Prisoner of Conscious, is finally set to arrive in 2013 with an intriguing and pretty damn stacked guest lineup. Across the 16 tracks, the BK MC is joined by the likes of Miguel, Curren$y, Kendrick Lamar, and Busta Rhymes. Interestingly enough, Nelly makes an appearance as does Seu Jorge, the Brazilian singer-songwriter/actor best known for his work in The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou.
