Talib Kweli Drops Some Knowledge On Ruby Hornet

Vodpod videos no longer available.

The one and only Talib Kweli recently was in Chicago, and DJ RTC from Ruby Hornet TV had the chance to interview him about a variety of things. Talib talks about where he is at this point of his career and how he has gotten to the point where he is happy with his following. Talib and DJ RTC talk about The Beautiful Struggle a little bit, and they discuss how Talib was able to go on tour with The Beastie Boys, as well as the backlash from fans about the album. A good area that Talib touches on is Twitter and how he feels that he is able to convey something he feels strongly about to the people that follow him. As you can expect, Black Star is definitely mentioned in the interview. Talib also discusses what it’s like to be working with Hi-Tek again.

Make sure you check this one, Talib is one of the best that is doing it, as well as one of the best that’s ever done it. The video is a little long, clocking in at just under eleven minutes, but if you are a huge Kweli fan like me you will probably watch it. It’s always great to hear Kweli dropping some knowledge to the masses.


Adam Yauch (MCA) Makes A Serious Announcement

MCA has made the announcement that the doctors have found cancerous cells in his lymph node area. I can’t tell you how devastated I was (and still am) when I heard this. The Beastie Boys have been one of the most pivotal groups in Hip-Hop since the beginning, and in my opinion they will continue to be. It’s unfortunate for all of the fans out there that had tickets to their upcoming shows, but MCA needs all of your prayers at this time to make it to a speedy recovery. Just let it be known that the people at Mind Inversion are sending out our prayers to MCA and The Beastie Boys.
