Soundcheck presents Brooklyn-based rapper Talib Kweli, who will release his fifth album, Prisoner of Conscious, this May.
Both as a solo artist and one-half of the hip-hop duo Black Star (with Yasiin Bey, formerly known as Mos Def), Kweli has become known for his broad-ranging lyrics and rapid-fire delivery throughout his 20-year career. His latest album includes guest appearances from artists like Kendrick Lamar, Miguel, Melanie Fiona and Busta Rhymes.
In addition to a live performance, Soundcheck host John Schaefer will join Kweli on stage for a conversation about the territory between the personal and the political — and about his myriad projects. Seating will be first come, first served.
