XXcLusive: Talib Kweli Clears up Kanye West/MF Doom Collabo Rumors

Talib Kweli recently had the Internet going nuts when he posted a comment on his Twitter account about being in the studio with Kanye West, MF Doom and frequent collaborator Madlib. XXLMag.com recently caught up with the Brooklyn MC via email to speak on the possible collaboration, but apparently people misunderstood his statements.

It all started when Kweli tweeted “…In the lab with MF Doom, Madlib and Kanye,” on October 7 on his account. Based off his statements, fans hoped all four artists were working on a track, especially since Kwe has worked with all of the individuals before. The Blacksmith leader has made a free, full-length album with Madlib titled Liberation and appeared on several songs with West and DOOM in the past.

“There was no song, I only said I was in the studio chillin’ with Ye, Madlib and Doom and the world assumed we was working on a song,” he explained to XXL. “We was drinking lol,” he continued. “Not Ye though.”

In related news the Reflection Eternal rapper is the latest artist set to get the Noisemakers treatment. As XXLMag.com previously reported, Hot 97 DJ, Peter Rosenberg, will be interviewing him live at NYC’s 927 on October 21. Past interviewees have included Raekwon, ?uestlove, Q-Tip and DJ Premier. Tickets for the event are onsale now. –Jesse Gissen
