Talib Kweli Talks New Memoir 'Vibrate Higher', Origins & What A True G Is

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

The BK MC Talib Kweli sits down with MONTREALITY to wax for a bit. It was a casual and quite candid account with Kweli, accented by topics like the hip-hop community's fascination with the likes of the illuminati, what the best thing he ever wrote was or even what kind of jobs a young Kweli took on, claiming that his fascination with literature began when he worked at a bookstore as a kid; the very same bookstore that he and Mos Def bought years later. Its a cool, casual, yet poignant Kweli that breaks the news on his upcoming memoir Vibrate Higher and empathizes with what he claims is the unfair portrayal of DMX in the media. To hear him talk on all these things --not to mention who his favorite cartoon characters are and what the true definition of a G is-- watch the light-hearted sit-down with Talib Kweli below. We'll have more on Vibrate Higher as details roll out.
