PHOTOS: Talib Kweli drops a sick set at Yonge-Dundas Square

Was all ready to spend Saturday night at home when my twitter feed mentions that the great Talib Kweli is doing a free show at Yonge-Dundas Square. I’ve loved Talib since he dropped Quality a good ten years ago. Really, there is great hip-hop which Talib certainly ranks as one of the finest voices of this generation (and then there’s crap hip-hop which Drake certainly comes to mind – but that’s probably a subject for another post.)

I hadn’t shot music for a while. So without any media pass – and using some good old fashioned “hustle to the front of the stage” moves we decided to see what we could get. Pretty happy with the results – Talib seemed to appreciate at least one photo. Needless to say, Talib put on an amazing show. (all photos Richard Budman)
