Idle Warship’s Talib Kweli and Res Live at Southpaw
Last Friday, Brooklyn emcee Talib Kweli returned to his hometown with Res to perform their debut album at Southpaw. DJ Meka (2DopeBoyz) warmed up the crowd with a host of hip hop acts before Idle Warship hit the stage just past midnight. The audience was an eclectic mix of Talib’s hip hop heads and Res’ soulful devotees, coming together to embrace Idle Warship’s genre bending sound. Surprise guest Michelle Williams (Destiny’s Child) came by to do a set with the duo, and 12oz was backstage to capture it all. After the show, Talib and Res took time out to sign copies of their album and take photos with fans. Get your copy of “Habits of the Heart”, available now on iTunes!
