The Brooklyn-based MC earned his stripes as one of the most lyrically-gifted, socially aware and politically insightful rappers to emerge in the last 20 years.
“I’m a touring artist. I’m an artist that’s internationally known. I’m not just a local artist at this point in my career. I’m cognizant of the fact that what I do is beyond where it started. I’m trying to reach the apex of where I am now, but without turning my back on or dismissing what I’ve done before.”
After nearly 20 years of releasing mesmerizing music, Talib Kweli stands as one of the world’s most talented and most accomplished Hip Hop artists. Whether working with Mos Def as one-half of Black Star, partnering with producer Hi-Tek for Reflection Eternal, releasing landmark solo material or collaborating with Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Just Blaze, J Dilla, or Madlib, Kweli commands attention by delivering top-tier lyricism, crafting captivating stories and showing the ability to rhyme over virtually any type of instrumental.
In 2011, Kweli founded Javotti Media, which is self-defined as “a platform for independent thinkers and doers.” Kweli has set out to make Javotti Media (which released his 2011 album, Gutter Rainbows, and is named after his paternal grandmother) into a media powerhouse that releases music, films and books.

“Get ready, because we are going to one of the coolest places there is, we’re going to Nashville, otherwise known as “Music City”! Nashville is known for its country music scene, and this is also where Elvis recording some of his most popular hits. However, you don’t have to be a lover of country as the alternative music scene also continues to evolve. Walking down the streets you hear never-ending great tunes spilling out from every bar you pass. This is where you’ll find the best live music entertainment in the US, if not the world! But it is not only the music scene this city has going for it, constant creative growth continues to happen and evolve the art, culture, food and fashion scene. Nashville is a place of creativity and artistic expression, and one of the hottest places to visit this year!”
