Talib Kweli & 9th Wonder On The Floor Red Bull Music Academy Sessions live in Miami WMC 2011! Here's a dope live recording of the event that took place at The Florida Room featuring one of hip hop's greatest Talb Kweli with producer/dj 9th Wonder!
There aren't many MCs like Kweli. He keeps the spirit of old school hip hop alive and well, with a dextrous technique and a deep, spiritual flow that could cut through floodplains. Delivering the first acclaimed Black Star LP with Mos Def and Hi-Tek set Kweli on a road of beats and messages, exploring roots, culture, and community with an energy that doesn't take the tempting paths of greed, selfishness, and consumerism for granted. Kweli has always stuck to his guns: whether he's collaborating with Kanye West, Madlib, or Dave Chapelle, Kweli's lyrics speak of a message way bigger than the sum of their parts. After creating his own record label Blacksmith Records, his drive shows no signs of slowing, and with each new release he delivers antidotes not just to vapid, plastic hip hop, but to the wider ills of culture and society in general. Enter 9th Wonder: born, raised and residing in North Carolina, 9th Wonder is the production third of the state's biggest hip hop export, Little Brother. Heavily formed by golden era producers, the soulful warmth of his production technique has seen him work with underground stars like Murs and Jean Grae, as well as producing for US pop royalty like Jay-Z and Destiny's Child. Catch them both live at Florida Room in Miami Beach.
