Red Bull Music Academy is an annual two-week-long global music event that travels the world celebrating all the journeys, breakthroughs, dreams, and intricacies that evolve the music of tomorrow.
This local workshop is an intimate session with two of Hip Hop’s most critically acclaimed artists Talib Kweli & 9th Wonder. Designed to give aspiring musicians and music enthusiasts an inside look to the ever changing music industry, the Miami On the Floor session is a preview to what those selected for the Red Bull Music Academy will experience in Tokyo.
Talib Kweli has become one of the most critically successful rappers of his time since performing alongside Mos Def and DJ Hi-Tek as part of the group Black Star. Kweli has gone on to release numerous albums and after serious urgency in the studio, Kweli presents “Gutter Rainbows,” an album that takes a trip back to childhood while marking the newest stage in his long and dynamic career.
9th Wonder is well known for his production work on numerous albums such as Jay-Z’s “Threats”, Erykah Badu’s “Honey” as well as the many hits from the NC group Little Brother and others. 9th Wonder has made it his mission to delight the grown and sexy crowds of today with the hottest hip-hop jams from the days when songs made you move and made some sense, all at the same time.
