If skills sold, truth be told, Jay Z would probably lyrically be Talib Kweli. Well, Talib Kweli has no choice but to be himself, and his bad self will play a DJ set at Bar Smith on Saturday, January 31, the day before the Super Bowl.
The event, put on by Artistauditions.com, will be hosted by rapper Paul Wall, whose 2005 debut album The People's Champ debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
A whole slew of other bands will perform as well, including Pennywise, Ragz, Spoolz, Yog West Wood, Pry$e Tag, and more.
Correction: This article originally stated that the concert was happening at Monarch Theatre. It is scheduled to happen at Bar Smith.
