Talib Kweli @ House of Blues

Between the success of The Beautifiul Struggle, forming his own imprint in Blacksmith Music, and releasing quite a bit of new material (including the recent Madlib collaboration, Liberation, which first saw life as a digital download), Talib Kweli is a very busy man. The BK emcee comes Chicago on tour, and tickets are available from LiveNation. Doors at 6, show at 7.
