After CNN had the eloquent Killer Mike speak on television the other day, it seems like the network has an appetite for rappers. Talib Kweli joined the highly unpopular CNN anchor Don Lemon live on television yesterday, and things went a little haywire.
Apparently, Lemon cut Talib off just before this video begins, just as Kweli had been accusing CNN of falsely portraying the situation in Ferguson, MO. The first thing we hear is an irritated Talib Kweli ripping into Lemon, who apparently waved off production orders to cut Kweli off (again) so the rapper could (more fully) express his sentiments. Needless to say, things got awkward. Watch the clip above.
