Talib Kweli Talks Gravitas, Conscious Rap, K.Dot & More On Out Da Box Radio
Out Da Box Radio chops it up with Talib Kweli in the first episode of the year, with a discussion about his career evolution that touches on a myriad of topics including conscious rap, the Gravitas LP, Kendrick Lamar, The Grammys, NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio and more. The chat, of course, also includes some lyrical heat with a selection of tracks that demonstrate Kweli’s unwavering and decidedly impressive lyrical ability. Kweli also breaks down his efforts to connect more directly with fans and how that desire contributed to the creation of #Kweliclub, which is much a point of access for fans as it is an immediate venue for distribution that cuts out the middle man. He also breaks down the state of Black Star, his work with Hi-Tek and other MC’s and the recurring topic of the Illuminati; Kweli has spoken more frequently about the topic and recorded a song that addresses the phenomenon.
