Over the years, this Brooklyn-based artist has made a name for himself as one-half of the wildly successful rap duo, Black Star, with Mos Def. These days, Talib Kweli is flying solo, and reaping the rewards of creating one of the most talked about hip hop albums of the year.

Read on to learn more about Kweli and enter to win a pair of tickets to see him live in Madison on Friday, April 23.
