Time Interviews Talib Kweli on the Burdens of Being Hip-Hop’s Outspoken Conscience

Time.com has an interview with Talib Kweli focusing on his upcoming album, Prisoner of Conscious.   It’s an interesting read, particularly because Kweli appears to yearn for a little more grit.

While Kweli has no problem sticking up for what he believes in, he balks at being pigeonholed in the “conscious rap” genre. It’s not that he wants to align himself with the misogyny or homophobia that is rampant in much of mainstream hip-hop, it’s that his skill as an artist is frequently overshadowed by his message.

  1. Hi there! I realize this is somewhat off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does running a well-established blog such as yours take a large
    amount of work? I’m completely new to operating a blog however I do write in my diary everyday.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can share my own experience and views online.

    Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.

    Appreciate it!

  2. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about
    this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you can do with a few pics to drive the message home a bit, but
    other than that, this is wonderful blog. A fantastic read.
    I will certainly be back.
