    Sitting here watching the Bruins and next thing you know – BAM – in a tweet beef with Talib Kweli. If you haven’t heard of him before he was a rapper who was last relevant in 2002. We used to listen to his shit all the time back in the UMass days. Then 50 Cent started rapping about killing everyone who looked at him the wrong way, Ludacris became a thing, and all of a sudden no one cared about Talib Kweli anymore.

    It all began when Talib Kweli started humble bragging about paying child support. As if he should get a cookie for that or something:

    Oh shit!! Someone’s doing the bare minimum and not getting enough cred!! Get this many a trophy!!

    Hey Talib, here’s an idea – be there for your kid instead of spreading your seed around like it’s going out of style. Nah, that sort of recommendation is racist according to my man Talib Kweli!!


    Talib has 1.2 million Twitter followers. We’ve been baselessly called racist by many, many morons before this. But never by someone with this much of an audience. We’ve officially moved beyond local ratchets and race baiters, and moved onto bigger fish.

    But as we pointed out to him, he’s a millionaire bragging about paying child support, which is something you’re SUPPOSED to do if you have the money:

    Talib disagreed:

    It’s true. Used to jam out to Talib Kweli back when he was relevant. Can’t tell you how many times I listened to this song (Get By) after stealing it off of the 6 month free for all that will go down in history as Napster:

    It’s a great song because back in ought two every rapper and their mother was making a song about killing as many people as possible, and then Talib comes out with this song about the struggles of the urban working class. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not Pulitzer worthy or anything, just a step up from the usual garbage that I enjoyed so much back then.

    Anyway, we tried dropping a “Get By” reference but it evidently went way over his head and he lost his Goddamn mind on Turtleboy!!

    After that he tried getting Turtleboy to buy his new album:

    There’s nothing worse than a washed up musician who wants to make you listen to their new shit. Hey Eddie Vedder, we’re talking to you!! Less new shit, more songs about Jeremy’s art project on the blackboard.

    At this point we realized that this had to be some sort of vain attempt to become relevant again right?

    This is a millionaire with over a million followers, getting in a pissing match with Turtleboy over “metrics” of who won a Monday night tweet beef. This is how you know your career has hit rock bottom.

    And finally Talib did what most people did after getting destroyed with facts by Turtleboy – whipped out the race card and yelled Gin Rummy:

    Hey Talib, we win. Good luck with your album though. Turtleboy Jr. says Nick Cannon is way better. Just sayin.

    Oh, and by the way:

    Boom. Roasted.

      My favorite part is where you’re taking shit for “bringing up his family” when he’s the one who brought up sending money to do his fathering.

      1. Devils Mouthpiece

        My thought exactly. Too stupid to remember what he twatted a few moments before. No wonder he’s irrelevant.

        1. Mystressovmayhem

          Right! Too stupid to wear a rubber, to stupid to remember what he tweeted. Then again, how smart do you gotta be to rap? There’s literally only so many topics to make up any rap song. Hoes. Bitches. Blunts. shooting. Fucking. “Gettin wadz minez.” and cops.

    2. 41 year old adolescent

      Comes from a professional family to start with. Time to get a life, old poseurs need to grow-up too.

    3. Realist

      Relevant? I don’t even remember this guy, But I do see that TB piggybacked onto that asshat Matt Walsh’s twitter beef with him. So tell me now, Who is trying to be relevant?

    4. mystressovmayhem

      JS if you running your mouth about paying child support. You’re looking for a pat on the back, cookies, props, or all three. Then he says that’s not why he said it. Bullshit! This clusterfuck was on the “I need attention, so i’ll throw out a worm and hope someone bites.” routine.
      Hell I was an 80’s kid, and I never heard of this crotchnuzzler. And after youtubing his music, I’m sorry I heard of him now.

    5. Chip Striker

      The only thing I hate more than rap music are the animals that sing it.

      1. Jack Mehoff

        Rap IS NOT MUSIC. Music is beautiful, each and every kind. Rap is ghetto shit.

        1. Trav

          This is the most ignorant shit ive read in.so long.. You clowns say or do anything for some laughs

    6. What’s funny about Talib Kweli is I remember him back in like 1999 when he first came on the music scene saying how he grew up a 5 percenter. At the time as the SJUW was still too young to get it, I didn’t know what that was, but I was just googling it and I read a bunch that basically said they believe that the blacks are the “parents” of the Earth and they are superior on all grounds to other races. Check his tweets out and he spews gems out about not being able to speak to him because the person isn’t black, why you shouldn’t vote, why only the young have the energy to change the world (he’s 41 for reference), and why the music industry is lame (he hasn’t sniffed the Billboard charts since George Dubbya was pres). He’s an asshat that loves the race card and has no qualms about playing it. If he wasn’t a millionaire he’d be the type standing in the middle of the highway holding hands on a Tuesday morning at 8 am (no job) blocking traffic. It’s not a race thing, it’s an ideological thing. I don’t care if he’s orange like the Ultimate Warrior…he’s an idiot and it’s no wonder he’s not with the mother of his children.

        fuck you

    7. mike

      if hes so washed up why would any one care to read this dumb ass article? if im reading correctly this is about a twitter beef that turtle boy started with a washed up rapper?? yaa..NO ONE GIVES A FCK. YOUR STORYS SUCK BRO TELL ANOTHER

      1. mystressovmayhem

        Nah Turtleboy was asking why he needs internet blow jobs for being a parent. He could’ve just said “That’s not why dude but aiiiiiight.” Instead he tried to go all Rocky five, which proved his guilt.
        You’re right Turtleboy did engage him, but he’s still washed up. When was his last stint at the music awards? Shit his last song was played when MTV and VH1 had “Pop up video”. If that doesn’t say enough.,…

      2. Tired of Don't Snitch Pussies

        Yet you read the “dumb ass article” and felt strongly enough to post a comment.

        Who’s the real moron, Bro?

      3. Bret

        And yet here you sit,, hanging on every word….

    8. Wigs

      ….back when the writer and his homeboys used to ride through the hood…er…Grafton Hill….listening to Talib Kweli….

      “Ni**ers will brag about something they’re supposed to do. Like, ‘I take care of my kids.’ You’re supposed to you dumb motherf**ker!” — Chris Rock

      I guess Chris Rock is racist too…

      1. Duchessofdisdain

        Ah yes but Chris Rock is allowed! Mutual blackness and all that, tends to make it so!

        1. mara

          I don’t care who uses the word it’s OFFENSIVE and just in using it you and Duke Westwood have taken your intelligence to the gutter. If you are looking to hold intelligent conversations about race; wonder. If you are just looking for a moment to be captured on TB news then clearly you are missing the big picture.

          1. duchessofdisdain

            Hey Mara go f#ck yourself! Unlike your douchebagish self, I don’t make the claim of being superior enough to correct others language.
            Instead (without using the word) I pointed to the truth in his acknowledgment of the reoccurring double standard that is the use of the word you found “so offensive”. Something else I couldn’t give a rat’s ass about. Along with race as a hole, and your definition of “intelligent” conversation. Clearly you’re just another c%nt who’s opinion is that only hers matters. Notice you twatwaffle you didn’t acknowledge the fact the word has a doble standard did you? Just what you deemed “offensive”. Now run along to your safe space and leave the adults to play.

            1. Smartypants

              That was the longest, most pointless, and useless comment seen here today! Congrats Asswipe!

            2. Duchessofdisdain

              Awe wanna be “smartypants” Did I knock your little friend? Feel free to join her in her safe space. Practice reading comprehension together, as neither of you posses it.

    10. Peaked in 95

      Google his net worth and its about 4 mil, give or take. A lot to most, but in the rap world, 4 million is the price for a house. Maybe he should be in the studio, or consider getting a second job. Then he won’t have time to humiliate himself on twitter, lol.

    11. White Pride White Power

      Discussed this article at tonight’s White Lives Matter meeting and we ended up chanting TALIB NIGGER! for 45 straight minutes. Thanks again for the inspiration, TurtleBoy!


      I was a teenager, dating someone really into rap music between 99 and 02 and I’ve never even heard of him. He must be really washed up.

    13. Whorechester

      Washed up like Aiden’s history teaching career, sad.

      1. Mystressovmayhem

        Who is Aiden? Serious question..
