Talib Kweli Freestyles For Be Heard Sessions

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Talib Kweli took some time to hang with Boost Mobile for the Be Heard Sessions. Kweli sat enveloped by the dark of night on a rooftop overlooking the city to discuss his own musical origins and inspiration. His style is a manifestation of his academically forward upbringing and a childhood interest in hip-hop culture. Kweli dissects the theme of the Be Heard series, suggesting that being heard is a catalyst for self-improvement and individual success - only once the public is able to see and hear your work can they begin to love what you bring to the table. With the wide reach of social media Kweli feels there is little reason to remain silent.
