This November, one half of infamous hip-hop group Black Star comes to The Haunt. Offering a welcome change from the pulsating, tinny world of pop music, Talib Kweli is guaranteed to offer some true hip-hop classics. Whether it is from his era defining work with Mos Def or from his influential solo work, November 25th promises to be a special night.
Kweli combines his distinctive, melodic voice with an incredible flow and a real desire for social change. His lyrics are profound and highlight his extreme political awareness. There is a real sense of urgency in his words, rarely found elsewhere. With a shift away from gangster rap, Talib Kweli offers a meaningful and soulful alternative to the likes of Biggie.
With the opportunity to see a hip-hop icon in an intimate venue, this is a must see gig.
Support on the night comes from Normanton Street who recently lit up The Haunt with their EP launch.
