"Nearly twelve years after the release of their only full-length collaboration -- 1998's Mos Def and Talib Kweli Are Black Star -- the now-name-brands Mos Def and Talib Kweli reminded a reverent crowd at Oakland's Fox Theater on Saturday that none of the sizzle has dissipated from the album's pointed, positive verse."

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
