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.
