Politics: Wondering “Who is Richard Spencer?” Talib Kweli Explains (Video)

The father of Alt-Right, the term and the movement. Don’t know what that means? Worry not… well not about not knowing, because Talib Kweli narrates an explanatory clip above on that. But DO worry about this RACIST’S rise to power and his continued influence!

‘Hail Trump!’ — Richard Spencer is the unapologetic White supremacist who you probably watched get punched in the head. He’s also the man who coined the term ‘alt-right’ and planned the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville that resulted in Heather Heyer’s death.

So how did this Pepe-The-Frog meme incarnate become the flag-bearer of American racism?

Talib Kweli – “She’s My Hero” (Prod. By Oh No)

‘Mommy, you’re free now.” That’s the quotable. Kweli buried it in a flurry of meaningful lines and rhymes, but that’s likely the feeling teen Bresha Meadows had when she shot and killed her abusive father. Talib Kweli put this single out in her tribute. Communicating that, despite what you feel about the kid taking her parent’s life, kid’s ought not even be made to feel like that’s a decision that has to be made. Deep.

Using the hashtag #FreeBresha supporters of Bresha Meadows have rallied around her, setting up a GoFundMe page for the family, here: You can find the latest updates on Bresha’s situation at

Talib Kweli Insists That Seasoned Artists Can Learn From Lil Yachty & 21 Savage (Video)

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.

F*ck radio…don’t need no radio… [and] F*CK Gene Simmons!

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.
