Occupy Wall Street may still be rearing its head accross the country in some states, but Talib Kweli is making sure he does his part to get the message heard. For his new video "Distractions," the Brooklyn MC takes it to the streets and in the thick of the movement going on in New York, where he spits some conscious rhymes about the state of our society and the distractions that we gravitate towards.

People nowadays care much more about a Kobe Bryant divorce and Kardashian wedding than politics and what's going on in the world, but keep fighting the good fight Talib.

His new album Prisoner of Conscious is due out next year.
