As far as content goes, the new Kweli CD doesn’t stray far from the rapper’s usual revolutionary fare.

“The vast majority of my subject matter focuses on black self-love, black self esteem, black self-worth," he tells Billboard. "That translates to other communities because if you're a human being, it doesn't matter what color you're talking about. You've been through some sort of struggle and you can apply it to your own life."

 on his own solo disc, Kweli will help launch new projects by his other Blacksmith artists, including rappers Jean Grae and Strong Arm Steady, a group that includes Xzibit, Phil the Agony, Krondon, and Mitchy Slick.

“With Blacksmith, I want it to be a flag that everyone can wave,” he says.

Kweli is currently on tour promoting the new album. He’ll play various dates in California, Oregon, and Washington over the next few weeks before heading overseas to do shows in Hamburg, Paris, and London.
