Talib Kweli Is Not Suing Blink-182

Talib Kweli, Music


Earlier today, several obscure websites started claiming that Talib Kweli was suing Blink-182’s Tom Delonge over a song entitled Good Day that was allegedly stolen from Kweli and released on Angels & Airwaves’ debut album. The most compelling source was claiming to be Kweli’s publicist in a statement posted to this blog. Well, we got a hold of Kweli himself, and he told us: “I am not suing anybody. I have absolutely no idea who those people are.”

Shortly after, Kweli CC’d us on an email to his people, clarifying: “I know who Tom is. We did a song, it was dope. I don’t know who these so called lawyers and publicist are. Yo, everybody, y’all gotta get the word out better.”

They replied: “[Tom] knows, and the person listed that is supposed to be repping you doesn’t exist.”

So there you have it.


Meanwhile, On The Internet...

    Good News. The only story I actually heard of this was that Tom wrote the song for Kweli and then released it anyway, which since he was the author he had the right to do so. Therefore Talib wouldn’t have a case anyway.
