Description

In this episode of People's Party, Talib Kweli and co-host Jasmin Leigh sit down British-born rapper, actress, radio personality, and fully-fledged member of the Native Tongues collective -- Monie Love.


The conversation with Monie evolves into a wide-ranging discussion starting with her childhood, growing up in London, and being heavily influenced by her father's Jamaican heritage. She goes on to give her unique perspective on the current anti-immigration sentiments being spread by groups like ADOS, she tells the story of how she came to be part of the Native Tongues collective at the age of 16, and outlines that organic induction being based on "vibes". Monie also goes on to illustrate the importance of DJ Red Alert, him being the conduit for so many of the greats that are now house-hold names, including herself, and they explore the evolution of Chris Lightly, from security detail for Red Alert to Violator Records executive.
