Hip Hop Artist Talib Kweli Appears at Occupy Wall Street Performs New Song

Hip Hop artist Talib Kweli appeared at Occupy Wall Street in a show of solidarity with real grassroots democracy, and performed a new rhyme called, "Distraction". In an interview he said, "I'm not aligned with everyone politically who is there," he said. "But I was overwhelmed by seeing democracy in action. You have to see how dedicated these people are to creating social awareness and creating a platform for us to talk about issues … disparities in our country."

Watch a video of the performance below.
