We are pleased to share this intimate, behind the scenes video, backstage at Radio City Music Hall during his birthday show. Chappelle describes his reasons for prohibiting the audience from recording his shows, and implores people, especially the youth, to happen in real life.
This video is the definition of being in the right place at the right time. When the Metro Creative team was initially invited to New York City to work with Talib Kweli on his music video Travelling Light, we didn’t have an exact scope of what the trip would entail. After a whirlwind few days, we found ourselves in an elevator with Jerry Seinfeld, at a Brooklyn block party with Spike Lee, Q-Tip and Kaytranada. Followed by backstage clearance at Radio City Hall with Mos Def and Chappelle. These events were all aside from the performances, and music video work we captured with Talib.
