Talib Kweli calls Egon a “culture vulture”
Talib Kweli recently hopped on Instagram to accuse Madlib's partner Eothon “Egon” Alapatt of taking advantage of black artists.
He claimed Egon is keeping MF DOOM's rhyme book and refuses to give it up back to the family.
“One day the hiphop community is going to have to discuss what a lying, stealing, conniving culture vulture Eothen Apalatt AKA Egon from Now Again Records is,” Kweli wrote. “This is a non Black person who routinely takes advantage of Black artists and brags about it.”
He continued: “Today all I want to know is why Egon stole MF DOOM rhyme book and refuses to give it back to DOOM family, even after MF DOOM passed away,” he wrote. “MF DOOM officiated this mans wedding FOR FREE, but then later stopped rocking with him because of his devil ways. Someone tag nowagain and asking Egon why he stole MF DOOM rhyme book, he got me blocked. The era of the culture vulture is OVER.”
