Talib Kweli Too Fancy For Malt Liquor?

 |  April 18, 2011

I’m actually not mad at Kweli for this one.  Even though I think it’s super cool to sell out to corporate America (particularly liquor corporations), I think it’s even cooler to stand up for what you believe in.  He heard Colt 45 was going to be involved in one of his shows in Kansas and he deaded it.  I’m not sure exactly what Kweli’s problem is with Colt 45, but that swill is definitely disgusting.  Can’t be tricking the kids into thinking it’s cool.  Look at what happened with NuVo.   Kweli tweeted:

  • “To my fans in Lawrence Kansas, the Granada Theater has partnered with Colt 45 without my knowledge to promote the show. We shut that down.  So on 4-20 I will be at the Granada in Lawrence Kansas but Colt 45 is no longer involved in the show promo. Thank yall (fans) for alerting me.”

Sidebar: Did you know Snoop Dogg is a spokesman for Colt 45?  Even though the guy doesn’t even drink!  I swear his pr company hits me with a new product he is endorsing every week.  Not mad at his hustle.  That’s how your boy stays killing it on that Forbes list.  Just forcing products all up in your grill mix.
