Little Brother @ All Points West 2008
Talib Kweli will hit the road with David Banner as well as Little Brother and B.O.B. (who are splitting the dates) as part of the Hip Hop Live! Tour which will see each group flanked by the "heralded 10-Piece live band Rhythm Roots All Stars for unique versions" of their songs. The nineteen date tour closes at Nokia Theater in NYC on 10/25 with both openers. Tickets are on sale for the show which is also part of CMJ.
Little Brother's two remaning members (Phonte & Big Pooh) are both prepping solo records. Phonte, is working on the sequel to his highly successful collabo with Nicolay, Foreign Exchange. Big Pooh will drop Rapper's Delight for free download "sometime next week". Check the album art below.
Blacksmith (Kweli's label) signees Strong Arm Steady dropped their new video "Can't Let It Go" from their upcoming album Arms & Hammers. Strong Arm Steady is Krondon, Phil Da Agony (member of Likwit Crew with King Tee and the artists formerly known as The Alkaholiks), and Mitchy Slick, but also used to contain Xzibit (also Likwit).
