Brooklyn-born emcee, lyricist, activist and politically charged hip-hop legend Talib Kweli is bringing his powerful flow back to the Bay. Promoting global consciousness that are assisted by genre-defining beats, he has been a staple in the rap game for more than the past 20 years.
Kweli’s work has served as thought-provoking dialogue between industry heads, government figures, community advocates and fans alike. Touring behind his most recent release of live cuts, P.O.C. Live!, he reflects on his legacy, shifting his creative vision and the inspiration he gets from his peers and collaborators.
This Sunday at The Independent, attendees can expect to hear plenty of tracks off of Kweli’s 2013 album Prisoner of Conscious, which he says he spent more time working on than any of his other records. But they can also expect to hear a career-spanning set of hits, none other than the Kanye West-produced single “Get By” from his 2002 debut LP Quality.
