Talib Kweli, Elzhi, and Phonte are a heavy hitting triple threat of lyricists who have proved their high quality caliber over the years. The trio put in some work on this track “No Competition” which will be on the upcoming Jamla Is The Squad mixtape, hosted by 9th Wonder and company. Each emcee flexes their seasoned lyrical skills over the soulful beat provided by Khrysis and it leaves the listener begging for more material from these three artists together. While we do not know much about this project, 9th Wonder certainly showed some recruiting savvy on this track that is sure to be a standout. ¬†

With Talib Kweli fresh off the release of two albums within the past year, Elzhi on the cusp of releasing his Kickstarter funded project, and Phonte’s work as a part of The Foreign Exchange, these veterans are the furthest thing from washed up. “No Competition” is a well-crafted reminder of what Kweli, Elzhi, and Phonte are capable as the three of them sound at home over the strong Khrysis production.
