Talib Kweli ft. KRS-One – The Perfect Beat (video)

Posted in Artists, Live Performances, Music Videos on August 26th, 2008 by Hyphen

The Blacksmith fam just released another video clip from Talib’s last album, Eardrum, this one featuring the legendary KRS-One.  Shout to Tunj and the homies for helping put together the footage of Talib and KRS at the Shrine Auditorium down in L.A..  Good stuff.

Get to know Strong Arm Steady

Posted in Artists, Joints, Videos on August 1st, 2008 by Hyphen

(LOL @ the Michael Eric Dyson shout…love that dude, pause)

The homies Tunji and Greg The Dude put together this video to introduce y’all to Krondon, Phil The Agony, and Mitchy Slick, collectively known as Strong Arm Steady.  You really should already be up on ’em, but if you aren’t, this will get you the basic info.  Be on the lookout for Arms & Hammers dropping later this year on Talib’s Blacksmith Music label.  If you checked the last episode of Sound Session, you heard the lead single “Can’t Let It Go,” which is a perfect summertime West Best Coast joint.  If you missed it, it’s your lucky day:

Talib Kweli Documentary (trailer)

Posted in Artists, Movies, Videos on July 25th, 2008 by Hyphen

OKP posted up a trailer for a Talib Kweli documentary that’s apparently been in the works since 1999.  That means there’s great footage and cosigns from everyone in the industry over those years, but it’s a little frightening if you’re hoping to see it released soon.  Maybe it really is “coming soon,” but I’m skeptical for now.  I hope it drops though, cause it looks dope as hell.

VIMBY – One Step Beyond: Talib Kweli

Tunji sent over this dope video of Talib (with Hi-Tek!), Buck, and Pete performing at the American Museum of Natural History a few weeks back.  Pete Rosenberg makes a good point – back in the day, who would have thought you’d see hip-hop take over a place like that?  Very ill.

Throwback: Soulive ft. Talib Kweli – Bridge To Bama (Hi-Tek Remix)

Posted in Artists, Joints, Remixes, Throwbacks on July 3rd, 2008 by Hyphen


While I was digging through the archives to grab that bonus Reks track, I noticed this classic joint by Soulive and thought I’d post it up.  Talib Kweli jumped on one of their tracks in 2002 and Hi-Tek remixed it, creating this ill, but often slept on, Reflection Eternal track.  Peep it.

So smooth with it.

Talib Kweli – Eat To Live (video)

Posted in Artists, Videos on June 26th, 2008 by Hyphen

I’m not sure why Talib felt the need to drop another video off Eardrum, but I’m not mad at all.  The whole album is dope as hell, so if you’ve been sleeping, go cop it.  This song was produced by Madlib and talks about one of life’s basic necessities.  Did you know there’s a worldwide food crisis right now?  Are you doing anything about it?
