Talib Kweli Joins Dezert Eez on "Rolex Dreamin'"


With their sixth album on the horizon, the Michigan-based crew, Dezert Eez deliver the crazy-smooth and laid-back lead single, “Rolex Dreamin’.” The track is anchored by tack-sharp verses from the group’s members in addition to a slick opening feature from Brooklyn’s own, Talib Kweli.

Of course, anyone who’s been following Dezert Eez since their 2005 debut mixtape, The Realness, knows these guys and Kweli are a perfect musical match. That’s particularly true of Hip-Hop heads who favor technical prowess and an ear for top-notch production. And if not, then consider yourself pretty damn lucky, because “Rolex Dreamin’” is one hell of an introduction to the trio of 5-Star, Nivek, and O’Nill.

Their new track glides with that chill-slapper vibe that listeners fond of the Rawkus era will surely fawn over—and Kweli’s appearance only drives that point home. He sounds just as confident over the jazzy Thovo production, as his hosts, who enjoy some fine greenery and drinks while doing “king’s work.”

“Rolex Dreamin’” can now be streamed, and is available for ‘instant grat’ off the iTunes’ pre-order for Late Night Cognac Sessions, which drops November 3rd through all major digital retailers and streaming outlets, via Soul Krush.
