Talib Kweli & Michael Rapaport Talk Ashy Ankles Controversy, N-Word, ATCQ, Hip-Hop | People's Pary

On this episode of People's Party, Talib Kweli and Jasmin Leigh sit down with actor, comedian, writer, sports reporter, podcast host, "international hero", hip hop aficionado, and close friend of Talib -- Michael Rapaport. Get ready for a wild one here, with an interview as upfront, honest, and hilarious as any we've seen here on People's Party. All starting with Mike growing up in New York during the 1980's, where for him "it was all about basketball, hip hop, and talkin' shit", then moving to LA to do stand-up comedy, which evolved into an acting career, starring in movies like "Zebrahead" and "Higher Learning".

As the show progresses the trio find themselves in sometimes heated disagreements over a few things, such as the firing of the Shane Gillis from SNL , and how much is "too much" even in world of comedy, the use of the N-word, and Mike's controversial "ashy ankles" comment towards Kenya Moore.

Later, Mike speaks on the "Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest," documentary he directed, and what it was like working with these legends on something so personal. He also talks about his meeting Dave Chappelle, his book "This Book Has Balls..", commentating for the "BIG3" league, and concludes with the story of how he saved hundreds of lives on a plane, garnering status of "international hero".
