Talib Kweli, the Brooklyn-based MC, earned his stripes as one of the most lyrically-gifted, socially aware and politically insightful rappers to emerge in the last 20 years. As one half of Black Star with Mos Def they dropped one of the classic albums of hip hop that catapulted them to the upper echelon of the genre. Whether partnering with producer Hi-Tek for Reflection Eternal, releasing landmark solo material or collaborating with Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Just Blaze, J Dilla, or Madlib, Talib Kweli has shown himself to be as woke as they come. He’s also well known for his social activism, lending his celebrity status to independently covering social justice issues including infamously appearing on CNN live from Ferguson, Missouri during protests over the fatal shooting of Michael Brown.
