What’s the best way to kill that post NYE slump?! A huge night of legendary HipHop featuring two of New York’s most respected Artists.
Kweli has been in the game for close to two decades now, coming out of the Brooklyn underground in the mid-90s before crossing over somewhat around the turn of the century with records such as the critically acclaimed 1998 record Mos Def & Talib Kweli Are Black Star (with Mos Def) and his brilliant 2002 solo debut Quality, which featured appearances from the likes of Dave Chappelle, Xzibit and Bilal as well as production from a fresh faced Kanye West. He has just dropped a new record by the name of Prisoner Of Conscious, which sees him somewhat reinvent himself creatively.
Continuing on the path of politically minded artists like Public Enemy, 2pac and KRS-One, the Florida-formed-New York based outfit known as Dead Prez has been crafting revolutionary but gangsta hip-hop since the late 1990s. “Dead Prez uses music not to lie about having expensive cars or girlfriends with big bottoms, but to rail against the inequities in American society. They do so with an insight and honesty that is rare in any art-form, let alone hip-hop.”
