Legendary Brooklyn MC and righteous dude Talib Kweli brings true hip-hop to the Waiting Room this evening for a hotly anticipated show with K’Valentine. One half of seminal MC duo Black Star, Kweli is a true teacher and student of hip-hop. A product of the early 90’s New School that was always intrinsically aware of the classic origins of the hip-hop art form, Kweli has always distilled and represented the essence of hip-hop culture while teaching (preaching) as a vigorous public intellectual and activist.

Joining him will be Chicago MC and poet K’Valentine, local MC’s Jae-Skeese and Devon Charles, and DJ sets from Milk & Dovey. Doors are at 7pm and tickets are $25 at the door.
