This politically aware rapper distinguished himself amongst the hip-hop crowd with socially conscious rhymes that have tackled anything from gun control to the state of modern rap. Since releasing his first album in 1998—recorded with fellow rapper Mos Def under the moniker Black Star—Talib Kweli has gone on to work with heavyweights such as Kanye West and Justin Timberlake and is gearing up for upcoming fifth album, Prisoner of Conscious. Denver MCs Input & Broken, Eddie Knolls, and Dealz Makes Beats will open for Kweli. Sun 8 p.m.
