I first caught this Brooklyn MC Rock the Mic at the Lyrist Lounge in NYC. This was before he formed the group Black Star with Mos Def, or inked his deal with RawKus Records. At that time there were not many MC’s who dared to write lyrics that were progressive and socially conscious. His vibe seemed to be a bridge between Public Enemy, and Dead Prez. Over the years TALIB KWELI has consistently provided the culture with classic HIP-HOP music, never conforming for the sake of record sales. Much respect to TALIB KWALI for the truth that he has brought to the game.
On November 21st Talib Kweli will be at Amos with BIG KRIT who is another MC out of Meridian, Mississippi boasting a serious catalog. Tickets are $22 in advance and $25 at the door. The Show starts at 8 PM, and all true HIP-HOP fans should make sure not to miss this event. We recommend it!
