With four DJ dates, Questlove graced Orlando plenty this year, but those nights were the fortunate windfall of bigger scheduling coincidences. Hip-hop royalty Talib Kweli, however, has notched a surprisingly deep association with our city. He spins here frequently thanks to Bullitt Bar, shot his latest music video (“What’s Real”) in public at the same bar in May and recently signed the tropic-cool Niko Is – one of Orlando’s freshest, most original MCs – to his label. We think shit’s getting serious.
