Idle Warship formed in 2009 when Talib Kweli, one of the finest lyricists in hip hop history, and singer RES (aka Shareese Ballard) cemented nearly 10 years of on-and-off collaborative work. In 2011, Kweli and RES released Idle Warship’s debut album, Habits of the Heart, which showcased Kweli’s impossibly quick and cerebral rhymes and RES’s world-class pop vocals in an electro-pop landscape.
