Talib Kweli “Get By” (live)

Talib Kweli’s “Get By” is one of the best hip-hop songs ever. The song is Kweli’s biggest hit, and Kanye West’s production on the song helped put him on the map.

This performance, spotted on Nah Right, is from a recent performance at B.B. King’s in New York by Idle Warship, a group consisting of Talib Kweli and singer Res.

The video starts with a dope drum and bass solo, followed by the keyboard player chiming in with bits of Nina Simone’s “Sinner Man,” the song that “Get By” samples.
