With all the shit going on in the world, it's like two huge, sad steps back for race relations right now. And just recently, it hit real close to home when local MC Niko Is and honorary local Talib Kweli encountered violent intolerance while on tour in Copenhagen.

As reported on Okayplayer, Kweli detailed a physical encounter he and Niko had with a couple "bigots" on an Instragram post:

The good news? Both seem to be OK. The better news? They still rocked the damn show that night. That's how you do it. Stay safe, homies, and keep on.
