Talib Kweli stopped by Sway In the Morning recently to spit a freestyle and discuss a wide variety of subjects. The Brooklyn emcee talked about Kanye West's influence on the rap game.
"What I like about Kanye and what he's done for artists like Drake and Big Sean and Lupe [Fiasco] and other artists that you hear in the mainstream that's not always busting their gun or popping bottles. They do that every once in a while. When they do do it you sometimes don't even believe them. It's like when you hear that type of stuff I like it. I like seeing the different influences in the mainstream. I like hearing Drake being emotional. People make fun of his raps for being emotional, but I think we need to hear more of that. I like Big Sean playing with the cadences and playing with flows. And going off the wall with it and trying different things," Talib said.
Talib also clears up rumors that he and Mos Def have split up. He says Blackstar is still intact and still do a lot of shows together.
