With his fifth album right around the corner, we caught up with Talib Kweli for a brief interview at SXSW earlier this month. In the clip above, the Brooklynite talks extensively about his love of Austin and the bizarre sights and sounds of the festival. Talib goes on to discuss the art of making a good setlist, why he wants to see more of Africa, his band's Iggy Pop cover.

Look out for Kweli's Prisoner of Conscious on May 7.
