Vintage Video: Talib Kweli And Friends at Fat Beats Circa 1998

Thursday, August 14th, 2014

DJ Eclipse continues to drop vintage gems. Here’s footage of a fresh faced Talib Kweli participating in a cypher at the NYC Fat Beats location in 1998. Joining him in the session are L-Fudge, Shabaam Sahdeeq, Skam2 & A.L. Skills. Kweli spits a verse that that contains lines that would eventually end up on tracks such as the Beatles influenced “Lonely People”, and Black Star’s “Twice Inna Lifetime”. I’m pretty sure I see my man DJ Peter Parker standing on the sidelines.

Eclipse explains:

In 1998 both L-Fudge and Shabaam Sahdeeq released 12″ singles on Rawkus Records. Rawkus had been around for a minute, but it was with this era of releases that they really started making some noise (along with Company Flow, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Sir Menelik, The High & Mighty and others). Here’s footage from the Fat Beats NYC in-store celebrating the release of these two singles. Like most FB in-stores, it was never limited to just the advertised artists. In this clip you’ll see L-Fudge, Talib Kweli, Shabaam Sahdeeq, Skam2? & A.L. Skills all performing. Shout out to Max Glazer on the wheels although he’s unseen.
