Since I began collecting in person autographs in 2006, I’ve interacted with hundreds of celebrities across sports, film and music. I respect them all.
I am a fan of many. I admire a few.
Talib Kweli is one of those few.
Regarded as one of hip-hop’s great talents and a man whose music I’ve had on rotation for a decade, it was a thrill to finally meet him. In Boston for a show at the Paradise Rock Club, I caught up with Talib at a Newbury Comics autograph signing where he was meeting and greeting fans in support of his latest release, Gutter Rainbows.
While waiting for his taxi to return with a forgotten phone, Talib took a few minutes to talk autographs with me. I appreciated his sincerity and candor and I thank him for being so generous with his time.
Leave a comment and let me know what you think of the interview.
