Talib Kweli on Sound Session (Appearance #4)

(watch it in HD on HyphenTV right here)

A few weeks ago, the big homies Talib Kweli and Corey Smyth stopped by KUBE to make their 4th appearance on Sound Session.  It’s always great to meet and interview people for the first time, but it’s even better once you get to know them and your ‘interviews’ just turn in to catching up with old friends.  It probably could have been under better circumstances though, cause right before we got up, this happened.  It shows you how cool Talib is that despite just finding out about the theft, he still took time for us before trying to find the laptop.  Booooooooo @ that “fan” who took Kwa’s MacBook.  Shame on you.

Anyway, if you missed any of the previous discussions, you can check ’em out on our podcast page right here.

This time around, we talked all about his current projects, including updates on the next Reflection Eternal album with Hi-Tek, his Idle Warship group with Res & Graph Nobel, and all things Blacksmith. We also discussed what it’s like to operate his own label, how new media has affected his career, a little politics, and more.  Be sure to watch it in high-def on the HyphenTV Vimeo page, or if you only want the audio, grab it below:

As I’ve said before on this site, virtually anything involving Transformers will be posted…especially when it also involves two of my favorite MC’s, Jean Grae and Talib Kweli.  Shout to Corey Smyth and the whole Blacksmith family.  Cop Jean’s long awaited album with 9th Wonder, Jeanius, today!

Bonus: Talib’s last appearance on Sound Session (his 3rd overall) from Aug. ’07 – http://www.mediafire.com/?crtec4xn5zy
