Talib Kweli

Legendary MC Talib Kweli celebrates hometown love on Valentine’s Day. The Brooklyn-based MC has earned his stripes as one of the most lyrically-gifted, socially-aware and politically-insightful rappers to emerge in the last 20 years.

A BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival alum, Talib Kweli has worked with Mos Def as one-half of Black Star; partnered with producer Hi-Tek for Reflection Eternal; released landmark solo material; and collaborated with Pharrell Williams, the Soul Rebels, and J Dilla. Kweli delivers top-tier lyricism, crafting captivating stories and showing the ability to rhyme over virtually any type of instrumental. 

Brazilian lyricist and Kweli protégé NIKO IS will open with tracks from his highly anticipated debut album UNIKO. As a preview of the Brazilian-inspired sounds found on the record, he recently released “Meet Me in the Future” that features Kweli and shows off Niko’s “skilled bilingual flow and raspy vocals, backed by an irresistible beat” (Remezcla). Special Guests TBA.
