Talib Kweli takes Hip-Hop to ‘Protest Stage’

Talib Kweli, the Brooklyn-based hip hop artist, was on two stages at Moogfest on Thursday — first at the Carolina Theatre talking about work, music and politics, and later on a large outdoor stage outside Motorco Music Hall.

The outdoor stage at Moogfest is called the “Protest Stage.” Kweli performed a high energy range of songs including old school beats, reggae, A Tribe Called Quest and Black Star, the hip hop duo he was in with Mos Def. About halfway through his set, he stopped to talk about hip hop and society.

“This is pro-black rap. Because pro-blackness is about equality; it’s about equity,” he said. “Nobody is superior over anyone else. Race is a social construct.”

Kweli said that if they come to see him live in the flesh, then they get him live in the flesh, not just music.

“I’m 41 years old. I represent hip hop on this stage,” he said.
