Elec­tric Brix­ton — 7th Novem­ber 2018

Talib Kweli is back in Lon­don this Novem­ber to play one of the biggest Hip-Hop shows of the year!

Form­ing the incred­ibly well respec­ted Black­star in the late 90’s with the almighty Mos Def they released their sem­in­al, album, “Mos Def and Talib Kweli are Black Star” in 1998. The huge suc­cess of this album con­firmed Kweli’s place amongst the greats of hip hop.

Along­side his work with Mos Def, his solo career has been incred­ibly suc­cess­ful. Releas­ing his crit­ic­ally acclaimed debut solo album “Qual­ity” in 2002 on Rawkus Records Kweli was cata­pul­ted to music­al fame. The album fea­tured a young and unknown rap­per who now goes by the name, Kanye West. Talib is an highly tal­en­ted lyr­i­cist who has been con­sist­ently releas­ing thought-pro­vok­ing and inspir­a­tion­al albums, as well as col­lab­or­a­tions over the last 2 dec­ades.

Des­pite tour­ing the world, man­aging own label “Black­smith Records” and being a strong social act­iv­ist, Kweli is still writ­ing and cre­at­ing music that his fans can con­nect and relate to!

After wow­ing a sold out crowd with his incred­ible per­form­ance along­side Mos Def at the Black Star show at the Troxy last Novem­ber, you can be sure he will be keep­ing you gripped all night long with his hard hit­ting polit­ic­ally charged lyr­ic­al flow this time out at Elec­tric Brix­ton.

Come and join us for a spe­cial rare per­form­ance from one of the greats at Elec­tric Brix­ton this Novem­ber, it’s going to be a night to remem­ber!
