Watch: Talib Kweli’s Uncensored “Violations” Video ft Raekwon
Fans quickly voiced discontent with the censored visual, and the rapper released the uncensored version on Youtube, which is “completely un-edited” and includes “the censored shots of weed and gun gestures.”
Directed by R.A. The Rugged Man, the clip depicts the two rap legends as criminals who’ve been arrested for “smuggling and bootlegging” and “false pretenses and conspiracy.”
The Thaddeus Dixon-produced track appears on Talib’s acclaimed sixth solo studio album, Gravitas, which debuted December 15, 2013 via Javotti Media.
The LP also features Abby Dobson, Gary Clark Jr., Big K.R.I.T., Raekwon, The Underachievers, Black Thought, Rah Digga and Mike Posner, with production from Oh No, Khrysis, Statik Selektah, Rich Kidd and J Dilla among others.
