Talib Kweli expands tour; Black Star working with Kanye West?

Kanye West, Talib Kweli and Yasiin Bey

Talib Kweli has been busy touring in support of his latest LP Radio Silence, and in true Talib Kweli fashion, that tour just keeps expanding. The Brooklyn rapper added two full-band hometown shows for Brooklyn Bowl on April 3 and 4. Tickets for both shows go on sale Friday (2/9) at 10 AM. Talib and Yasiin Bey (aka Mos Def) also have a Black Star show in Denver. All dates are listed below.

Talib recently stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to perform the Radio Silence cut “The One I Love,” featuring BJ The Chicago Kid. The performance is pretty great, and you can watch it below.

Elsewhere, Talib created some buzz after posting a photo (above) to Instagram with Yasiin Bey and Kanye West (who is also reportedly working with Kid Cudi), showing various notes scribbled on a table, with the caption “2018 is looking good…” Is a Kanye/Black Star collab coming? Stay tuned.
