Talib Kweil gives an impromptu performance of his new song Distraction and Thieves in the Night during an Occupy Wall Street protest against economic inequality. Check out the video.

Talib Kweli drops 8 minutes of knowledge in rhyme in this impromptu performance on some steps during a peaceful protest against economic equality (Occupy Wall Street).  First, he performed a brand new song called Distraction and then he spit some verses to Thieves in the Night.  It’s a great reminder of hip-hop’s role in social commentary.  Also, if you missed it, check out Black Star’s performance of their new song Fix Up on The Colbert Show.
