Talib Kweli: Soundcheck Live In The Greene Space

Email a Friend
Brooklyn rapper Talib Kweli performs live on Soundcheck in the Greene Space at WNYC.

Both as a solo artist and one-half of the hip-hop duo Black Star (with Yasiin Bey, the rapper and actor formerly known as Mos Def), Talib Kweli has become known for his broad-ranging lyrics and rapid-fire delivery throughout his 20-year career. His latest and fifth album, Prisoner Of Conscious, is out in May and includes guest appearances from artists like Kendrick Lamar, Miguel, Melanie Fiona, and Busta Rhymes.

In addition to a live performance, Soundcheck host John Schaefer joins Kweli on stage for a conversation about the territory between the personal and the political — and about his myriad projects.
