Ever since Lil Wayne got out of the clink last week, the hip-hop industry has been insanely buzzed about what Lil Tunechi's gonna do next.
Yet, for diehard heads who've been with the game since Busta was just a shortie in Leaders of the New School, hip-hop's never lost its excitement or fervor, especially when you've got artists like Talib Kweli who consistently produce relevant music for the masses.
So for all you hip-hoppers, b-boys, recovering graffiti writers, and burgeoning MCs, come check out Talib tonight and tomorrow.
First, he'll make a not-so-surprise appearance at Wall for the club's Tuesday party, Favela Beach. And then Wednesday night, he'll helm a more intimate gathering, the opening night at AE District for a photo exhibition titled "True Hip-Hop."
Showcasing photos by New York photographer, Mike Schreiber, the show focuses on various hip-hop artists -- like Maino and Jim Jones -- that he's been lucky enough to shoot before they claimed fame. Bonus: Expect a Q&A with both Mike and Talib moderated by AE owner, Max Pierre.
Talib Kweli at Favela Beach. Tuesday, November 9. Wall, 2201 Collins Ave., Miami Beach. The party starts at 10 p.m. Call 305-938-3131 or visit wallmiami.com.
