Put Sway, DJ Premier, and Reflection Eternal in a satellite fishbowl and what do you get?
…I’m telling you the only thing better than free buffalo wings, seltzer waters, and promotional one-size-fits-all cap with the starred-eye doggy logo is seeing DJ Hi-Tek & Talib Kweli perform live in studio. By live I mean clear as day, through the Plexiglas live. Last night, the storied duo hit us exclusive (press and label reps) off with cuts from their upcoming album Revolutions Per Minute on the Hip Hop Nation station courtesy of Sirius radio. They did “Strangers”, “Back Again”, and “In This World”, which of course was out of this world. It almost made folks forget RE’s ten years of Hip-Hip latency. We forgave it at least.
Reflection Eternal head on the tour bus this May with a May 3rd stop at Black Cat in DC.
Sway: You know the tour dates off the top?
Talib Kweli jovially: I know that one because we got the day off May 4th.
Midtown Manhattan…raw Hip-Hop…live studio audience. A contemplative Sway, many stamps of approval from Primo on the ones and twos. Random questions about the Reflection Eternal as part of the Hip-Hop illuminati and Talib getting his shit stolen in Australia?
I dug it.
