Watch RZA and Talib Kweli Discuss Battling DJ Premier, Kung-Fu Classics, Staying Healthy in Quarantine and More

“I didn’t know I could communicate like that.”

Talib Kweli‘s People’s Party podcast returned this week with a special live episode, featuring a beamed in conversation with RZA.

Speaking from their respective corners of the internet, Kweli indulged the Abbot’s galaxy brain tendencies for nearly an hour, but kept it topical and relevant. Commencing with a few words on his recent showdown with DJ Premier, the Wu-Tang Clan architect expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to celebrate hip-hop with a contemporary and fellow pioneer. Refusing to call it a battle, RZA tells Kweli, “We was celebrating,” adding how he focused on keeping it fun and uplifting for viewers during a dark time.

The hip-hop legends went on to discuss politics, COVID-19, criminal justice reform, and staying healthy while in isolation, which was an opportunity for RZA to detail a strictly vegan and raw foods dietary regiment. He even flashes a bottle of his favorite Tumeric supplement for reference.
