Talib Kweli just gave the whole world a little present.

The politically conscious rapper released his new album Fuck The Money on Friday, with little advanced notice and for absolutely free. He made the announcement Thursday night via a post on Instagram: "I'm dropping a free album tomorrow. Join Kweliclub.com I will send it to you directly. #fuckthemoney."

Kweli is feeling awfully generous these days, as earlier this month he released a compilation of rare tracks, B-sides and previously unheard recordings called Train of Thought: Lost Lyrics, Rare Releases & Beautiful B-Sides Vol 1. Kanye West, Killer Mike, Common, Consequence, and Yasiin Bey all make appearances on the album.

The first single off Fuck The Money is fittingly, the title track "Fuck The Money." It features South African rapper Cassper Nyovest and it puts corporations and capitalism on blast with the help of a pitch shifted refrain and Kweli dropping lines like, "So I gotta tell the truth, that's a smart decision/Capitalism is a cataclysm/If white collar crime is a bad decision/Then the makers who routinely crash the system/ Would quickly get they asses dragged to prison." Check out the song below and click here to sign up and get the album for free. Capitalism be damned.
