Way to stay on it fellas. Visuals to follow up the audio we dropped on here when Kweli and SP put out the “Last Ones” single.
Your hear that work! Recognize a Don when he passing… Kweli said it on here. But you will cosign that sentiment for him and SP when you rock out to this “Last Ones” jawn. Beats and lyrics on deck! Produced by Antoine “Amadeus” Thompson.
Talib Kweli tells Vlad that Lil Yachty, 21 Savage, Ugly God and the other young’uns in the rap game have something to teach the rap vets. No, helllll nooo; not about putting out good music. Rather, they know how to get a buzz that gets heat for an artist without
paying playing the radio game. And that game has gotten even more expensive and more ‘in the shadows’ nowadays.
F*ck radio…don’t need no radio… [and] F*CK Gene Simmons!
Talib Kweli Speaks On His Times Meeting President Obama, Relationships With Other Artists And Much More (Video)
Tell the truth, we ‘never thought that Hip-Hop would take it this far’…
According to Talib Kweli (above), President Obama got his favorite artists together in a room to share ideas on and declare his desire for criminal justice reform to be part of his administration’s legacy… and ask for their inputs & help. Talk about a work-play moment! Imagine a concert featuring Talib, A$AP Rocky, J. Cole, Busta Rhymes, Pusha T and others? Why not? It’s the White House! But nah, country first. Still sounds like a cool meet-up.
(The story about his Grandma though… wow!)
Kweli also speaks on his next project (with Styles P), Yasiin Bey, the experience of working with Q-Tip and getting on the A Tribe Called Quest album, Jay Electronica and more. DOPE interview!
WOOOOO! Aloe Blacc put it down on this one, reminding you that he is way more than a jingle singer for M&Ms. Haaa! But seriously, Talib with this “Every Ghetto Pt 2” (a Nottz-produced remix of the “Indie 500” original). Niiiiice. Blacc… Kweli… Problem!
Ah, dig the intro to this (meant to say that before)…Now, this great late night audio escape mixtape is different from “The Insomniac #2” (which we posted on here earlier). The homie DJ Yogi calls this one “The Insomniac SHOW #2”… a continuation of a series (hopefully) starting with “The Insomniac SHOW #1” (which we posted on here days ago). Pay attention. Keep up. And if you’re up late, cue this mixtape curate up; featuring work from Fetty Wap (yup, you’ll dig what Yogi dug), BoneBreaker Jones, Reek Da Villian, Talib Kweli, T.I., J. Keys & Robyn Hood, Phil Da Agony and more.
Samuel L. Jackson x KRS-One x Sticky Fingaz x Mad Lion x Talib Kweli x Brother J – “I Can’t Breathe”
All lives will never matter until Black Lives Matter.
– Talib Kweli
‘Calling out the violence of the racist police,’ is what Samuel L. Jackson is singing and what Sticky Fingaz, Talib Kweli, Mad Lion, Brother J and KRS-ONE saying with the rhymes in “I Can’t Breathe.” Mad Lion brought the beat. And check out KRS with the shutdown verse. Revolution!
Another must-see for your Black History Month experience: “The Black Power Mixtape” (1967-1975). That’s right man. We wouldn’t lead you wrong. A mixtape, before we really recognized the term for the most part, of powerful stuff on the Civil Rights Era struggle. Peep the trailer above ( rent/buy link below), teasing footage of Black Pathers co-founder Bobby Seale, reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., activist Angela Davis, and others; with commentary from contemporaries (like Talib Kweli).
The Black Power Mixtape is an award winning compilation feature documentary that displays the story of the African-American community 1967-1975, the people, the society and the style that fueled a change. Told with sparkling, beautiful and deep footage, lost in the archives in Sweden for 30 years.

How you gone bang with the Clubber Lang of gutta slang?
– Talib Kweli
Bars! Bodied! Credit due to these dudes whose demand to these others is simply “Pay Ya Dues.” Beat by Eric G. Problem & Bad Lucc on the ride-along. Get this and more freshness off that “Indie 500” collabo album we posted from Talib Kweli & 9th Wonder.
Kendra Ross chanting that “Which Side Are You On” is like her taking us all to the church of Talib Kweli; special guest Tef Poe and music director Nottz on the beat. Stirring audio and visual off the “Indie 500” project Kweli and 9th Wonder have out now. Don’t be surprised if you get more than a little fired up after experiencing this.
Indie 500 this and Indie 500 that… been hearing it from us, and seeing the posts on ’em from us on here for a while now. Time to put up or shut up, right? Well, here you go. Stream the album audio above in advance of the “Indie 500” album – due out November 6, 2015 – from Talib Kweli & 9th Wonder (pre-order from iTunes via the link below).
(Now, shut up and listen. Haaaaaa!)
PRE-ORDER: TALIB KWELI X 9TH WONDER – INDIE 500 (ALBUM)
OHHH! The sound, the style, the swagger. What’s not to love about this live performance of “Every Ghetto” by Talib Kweli; featuring Rapsody and musical backing by The Roots. Got the music video and Indie 500 (Kweli and 9th Wonder) album pre-order linked below from an earlier post.
“The Mathematics” is a collaborative contribution to “Roy G. Biv: What A Colourful World” by Talib Kweli and Styles P. Check out the single stream above. You can get the single and album at the Kweli Club web store for… $0.00 (yep, that’s what the price reads right now). Go!
Talib Kweli and 9th Wonder putting some more Indie 500 work out. This here is that “Every Ghetto” (featuring Rapsody, from 9th’s Jamla movement) off the forthcoming “Indie 500” LP (due out November 6, 2015). Beat by Kweli’s buddy on “The Blast,” Ohio’s own Hi-Tek.
PRE-ORDER: TALIB KWELI X 9TH WONDER – INDIE 500 (ALBUM)
Gimme dat, b!tch, gimme dat!
Yoooo! It’s a Problem…and Bad Lucc and Talib Kweli… beating up an Eric G beat. Oughta press charges for this. Actually, just “Pay Your Dues” and we’ll be good. Listen up above to this one (linked below). Appears that it bears the Indie 500 (Pharoahe Monch, Talib Kweli & 9th Wonder’s movement to bring sense, sensibility and unity back into Hip-Hop, esp. with the Independent grinders) stamp. Cool.
Talib Kweli And Bill Maher Discuss #BlackLivesMatter Protesters Interrupting Bernie Sanders’ Presidential Campaign Speech (Video)
Bill Maher: Why Bernie Sanders? …If you’re gonna interrupt somebody… This guy had a hundred percent approval rating from the NAACP.
Talib Kweli: NAACP liked Donald Sterling, too.
And folks, that’s how we dig into a real conversation! Watch the video clip above and gain some perspective.
A while back, #BlackLivesMatter shut down a speech appearance by 2016 Presidential hopeful and leading American Progressive Bernie Sanders. Many disagreed with the women who took the mic. But EVERYONE paid attention, talked about it, talked about #BlackLivesMatter from many angles. Whether you ultimately agree or disagree with the tactic, Kweli does make a couple of solid points. The first, the duty of activist-protesters is to disrupt and gain the platform (which #BlackLivesMatter did LITERALLY). The second, NO candidate should take the Black vote for granted in 2016.
Very interesting. Do you agree with Kweli? Discuss…
