Talib Kweli

I saw Talib Kweli play for free at Ben Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia yesterday. It was really great – no frills presentation, just great music. Unfortunately some idiot local morning DJ had to patronizingly introduced him as a “conscientious and intelligent” hip-hop artist, saying nothing of his musical talent. Reminds me of some lyrics in one of my favorite Talib Kweli songs:

“Yo, I speak at schools a lot cause they say I’m intelligent
No, it’s cause I’m dope, if I was wack I’d be irrelevant”
