2 Covers[edit]

Of the two album covers, I see the black/red one used & accepted more than the brown/green/orange cover. The brown/green/orange cover is used on Talib Kweli's Myspace page, but the black/red one is used on Madlib's Myspace page, Stones Throw, and virtually everywhere else including [1], [2] and the majority of other blogs and forums where I've seen the album.

This may be true but kweli has said he, madlib and Blacksmith are the ones putting this out. on the blacksmith website it features the browngreenorange. in his latest blog he mentions this and says the art on the blacksmith site is official view "snow bunnies" blog


“Liberation, released on Talib Kweli’s label Blacksmith Music, was introduced to their fans when the first track was leaked, Funny Money. Following the leak, Kweli posted a blog to his fans on Myspace ( informing them that this was just a sample of a new album produced by Madlib of Stones Throw Records. After months of eager fan posts on messageboards across the web, the nine-track project is complete, in time for the new year. As a gift for the new year, fans can download the album here This album along with the release of the mixtape Talib Kweli Presents: Blacksmith the Movement, are preparing the way the Blacksmith’s artists’ releases beginning at the top of year with Talib Kweli’s Ear Drum.” --Anselm (AnselmP -

Where do you get this information? This is incorrect. Funny Money did not "leak" - it was posted by both Madlib and Talib Kweli on their respective Myspace pages. It was then released by Talib Kweli on his Blacksmith mixtape. The link for the free album is no longer valid. There isn't yet any information on Stones Throw, or those Myspace pages as to whether the album will be available again or released at a later time. MarcelloRubini 20:49, 8 January 2007 (UTC)
