Video: Talib Kweli + Freeway - "PA" + "Outstanding" [In-Studio Performances]

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.Talib Kweli + Freeway on Shade 45

Talib Kweli and Freeway drop bars at Show Off Radio for some Shade 45 studio performances. Freeway goes hard on his verse from Statik Selektah's "PA" with extra servings of gritty voice, bobbing head, and some P.A. (not-just-Philly) love. Following Free, Talib takes to the mic with some bars from the top. He's rudely interrupted when the DJ takes the beat back, but Talib remains unfazed. He transitions into a verse from "Outstanding," a single featuring Ryan Leslie off the upcoming album Prisoner of Conscious. If you've heard the studio recordings of both tracks featured in this video, you'll appreciate the in-studio performances. If not, maybe you'll be entertained by the end of the video, where Kweli jokingly admits that he's a little tipsy: "This is the 'At-Night Drunk Series!'"
