Wednesday night at Commonwealth Calgarians had the pleasure of seeing Talib Kweli live. Many know Talib as one half of the hiphop duo Black Star but this mellifluous rapper has successfully released four solo albums and collaborated with great artists such as Kendrick Lamar and Miquel. Hifi was the hosting platform for the concert (even though the show was at Commonwealth) and the performance was a delight to watch. The crowd was pumped to see a hip hop giant like Talib rip up the stage and he was equally excited to be there. I was blown away by Talib's delivery of rhymes, new and old tracks plus some dope covers. It was an overall treat to see all the hiphop heads in Calgary getting so pumped. Check out some Black Star and Talib tracks below.
