Live from MSR Studios, Talib Kweli participates in their, Off The Record series. The Brooklyn MC talks about the influence of his children, what makes an MC and being an artist.
“…social skills, delivery, people skills and an ear for beats” are only a few characteristics, he mentions of what makes an MC.
Kweli speaks about his artistry. “I’m an artist! I don’t get caught up by being an elitist or a purist or limiting my artistic expression by only working with people who agree with my social out look.”
The artist also, performs, with a band, “Get By” and “Turnt Up,” which is, …a tribute to Eric B and Rakim.” Check this and more out, after the jump.
