When you buy tickets to The People’s Champions Tour co-headlined by emcee legends Talib Kweli and Immortal Technique, you are guaranteed to see a show that’s about music and so much more. It’s about social consciousness; it’s about activism against corruption, inequality, prejudice and media censorship; it’s about justice, acceptance, and love. This is REAL hip hop after all, folks. Chicago’s Metro was fortunate to be the first of many sold out venues they’ll be playing across the country, and the show is not to be missed. If you want to feel inspired, go see these masters of their craft in action. For more photos from the show, head to The Vinyl District.
