Talib Kweli and Slick Rick at NYC’s Blue Note (A Gallery)
In early November, rapper/activist Talib Kweli performed eight shows over four nights at New York City’s famed Blue Note Jazz Club.
For his Nov. 8 performance Kweli celebrated Friday night with special guest Slick Rick.
The two musicians have crossed paths creatively in years prior, perhaps most memorably when Kweli and Mos Def covered Slick Rick’s 1989 track “Children’s Story” on their 1998 self-titled debut as Black Star.
