Event description
The Legendary hip hop artist Talib Kweli celebrates hometown love on Valentine's Day.

About this Event

Legendary MC Talib Kweli celebrates hometown love on Valentine’s Day. The Brooklyn-based MC has earned his stripes as one of the most lyrically-gifted, socially-aware and politically-insightful rappers to emerge in the last 20 years.

A BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival alum, Talib Kweli has worked with Mos Def as one-half of Black Star; partnered with producer Hi-Tek for Reflection Eternal; released landmark solo material; and collaborated with Pharrell Williams, the Soul Rebels, and J Dilla. Kweli delivers top-tier lyricism, crafting captivating stories and showing the ability to rhyme over virtually any type of instrumental. Special guest k'valentine.

Brazilian lyricist and Kweli protégé NIKO IS will open with tracks from his highly anticipated debut album UNIKO. As a preview of the Brazilian-inspired sounds found on the record, he recently released “Meet Me in the Future” that features Kweli and shows off Niko’s “skilled bilingual flow and raspy vocals, backed by an irresistible beat” (Remezcla).

BRIC House Sessions

The spirit of the BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival is alive in BRIC’s Fort Greene headquarters with world-class artists reflecting the diversity of Brooklyn in a must-do Thursday concert series. BRIC House Sessions draws its talent from a bold and eclectic array of musical genres and world cultures, featuring opening acts by local DJs and musicians, and headlining sets from internationally-renowned artists. Set against the backdrop of BRIC’s contemporary art gallery and the BRIC House Ballroom—one of the best spaces for live music in Brooklyn—each evening delivers a unique multi-sensory experience.
