Now tell me this story doesn’t prove how ridiculously small the world can be.  While performing in performing in Melbourne, Australia recently, Talib Kweli had his laptop, phone, and fresh Yankees hat swiped from his dressing room.  A distraught Talib sent out an S.O.S. message via Twitter asking anyone and everyone to help him find his stuff.  Randomly enough, the culprit (named Amir Bashir) was caught on surveillance camera, and he was recognized by none other than Vin Rock of Naughty By Nature, who happened to know Bashir personally.  Vin tweeted out to Kweli that he had his stuff, and a few hours later he rolled through to meet Talib with all of his missing gear (except his fresh Yankees hat).  It’s a crazy world we live in today.  Check out below for a bit of an exchange between Talib and Vin Rock, a picture of Amir Bashir, and Talib’s Twitter account of the entire incident.
