Bayside Bowl & Hip Hops are proud to present Talib Kweli : HIP HOPS 12!  The Brooklyn-based MC earned his stripes as one of the most lyrically-gifted, socially aware and politically insightful rappers to emerge in the last 20 years. “I’m a touring artist. I’m an artist that’s internationally known. I’m not just a local artist at this point in my career. I’m cognizant of the fact that what I do is beyond where it started. I’m trying to reach the apex of where I am now, but without turning my back on or dismissing what I’ve done before.” After nearly 20 years of releasing mesmerizing music, Talib Kweli stands as one of the world’s most talented and most accomplished Hip Hop artists. Whether working with Mos Def as one-half of Black Star, partnering with producer Hi-Tek for Reflection Eternal, releasing landmark solo material or collaborating with Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Just Blaze, J Dilla, or Madlib, Kweli commands attention by delivering top-tier lyricism, crafting captivating stories and showing the ability to rhyme over virtually any type of instrumental.  In 2011, Kweli founded Javotti Media, which is self-defined as “a platform for independent thinkers and doers.” Kweli has set out to make Javotti Media (which released his 2011 album, Gutter Rainbows, and is named after his paternal grandmother) into a media powerhouse that releases music, films and books.  Join us as we welcome Talib Kweli to Bayside Bowl for Hip Hops 12!  Opening the night are Ben Shorr, DJ Myth, Flowpez, Shameek The God and Sarah Violette & Renee Coolbrith.  Hip Hops 12 is produced in conjunction with our sponsors (Oxbow Brewing Company, Austin Street Brewery, Orono Brewing Co, This Thing Of Ours Barber Co, Dark Harbor Tattoo Society), to whom we extend a huge thanks! For more info on Talib Kweli and Hip Hops 12, please visit these links:
