Talib Kweli is back, putting the fear in you. This new video for "Upper Echelon" mixes a synth-heavy sound with conscious rap, composing an entirely new sound for the hip-hop veteran. The video itself has a similar mirror symmetry to the Throne's seizure-inducing video for "Ni**as in Paris." Expect cameos from the likes of Mos Def and Affion Crockett.

Kweli's upcoming album, Prisoner of Conscious, is set to release April 23 of this year.
