Talib Kweli – Tripod, Dublin

Underground hip-hop visionary TALIB KWELI is set to return to TRIPOD on Saturday 30th January.

The thinking man’s rapper tours Europe ahead of the release later this year of his upcoming album ‘Revolutions Per Minute’, his second as Reflection Eternal with long-time collaborator Hi Tek.

Since his stellar debut with Mos Def as Black Star in the late 1990s, KWELI has been one of rap’s most exceptional and consistent artists. His last solo album ‘Eardrum’ debuted at number 2 on the U.S. Billboard 200, selling about 60,000 copies in its first week.

Check out ‘Back Again’, the first single from his upcoming album here.
