Since emerging in 1998 to link up with Mos Def and form Black Star, socially conscious MC Talib Kweli has made a name for himself as a solo artist of true integrity—even Jay Z references his verbal dexterity: “If skills sold/Truth be told/I'd probably be/Lyrically/Talib Kweli.” Catch the underground icon for at Metro, backed by a live band, in support of his recent Gravitas LP, his second album in a busy last year.
