Talib Kweli was performing his smash “Get By” at The Roundhouse in Camden when some bloke decided it was a good idea to cut his sound. An angry Kweli cussed out the venue and swore to never perform there again. This was a terrible move by Roundhouse and I’ll tell you why. Kweli is an MC who specializes in headphone music. As such, few of his songs translate well live. “Get By” is one of those songs. So, you don’t fucking cut him off when he’s fucking doing “Get By.” Simple as that.
