Talib Kweli is the latest rapper to make the trip down to Ferguson, Missouri to mourn the death of Mike Brown and show support to the community. Never one to bite his tongue, the Brooklyn MC made an appearance on CNN earlier today, where he took Don Lemon — who isn’t exactly wildly popular among black viewers — to task.
Right off the bat, Talib put the media on blast for presenting an inaccurate narrative of events in Ferguson. Naturally, Lemon disagreed with him and claimed that his network have “done really great coverage here,” which is when Kweli took the safety off and let the chopper fly. At one point, while being continuously interrupted by Lemon, Kweli even walked off camera and threatened to leave the interview.
