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 referenced his verbal dexterity: “If skills sold/Truth be told/I'd probably be/Lyrically/Talib Kweli.” The underground hero takes the stage here with selections from his latest, Indie 500, which found Kweli teaming up with lauded producer 9th Wonder.
