From a press release:

Yesterday, at a private residence in Bel Air, Talib Kweli and DJ Eque tied the knot. They were surrounded by a very small group of friends who included Queen Latifah, Questlove, DJ Rashida, Adam Rodriguez (of CSI) and family. The reception took place outdoors underneath white tents where guests cooled off under the 90 degree weather with Hennessy Continentals (a drink that includes Hennessy VSOP, cranberry and pineapple juices). In the photo below and attached, the happy couple pose right before sitting down to eat an early dinner with their guests. Hennessy also gifted the glowing pair with a few bottles of Hennessy Paradis which retail at $500 a pop.

I would not be living up to my reputation as a hater if I didn't point out how tacky this wedding photo is. Times must really be hard if the bills for Talib Kweli and DJ Eque's wedding were written off by a liquor company. I thought certain things in life were sacred? It doesn't matter if the wedding was free. I'm not posing for my wedding photos holding a bottle of hard liquor. It just ain't right. Congrats to the happy couple though.

  • Kymystry

    Congrats to the couple ...

    and thats not hate Sandra .. THATS Star Jones Tacky !!

  • yvonne79

    Morning family!

    I am trying to keep the good vibrations going this morning. Searching for a positive. Got one! Her dress is gorgeous..

  • Shauny

    I held a bottle of Henn in my hand and took a picture too. I know damn well no one footed my bill.

    This picture could've just been sort of the same. Someone saying let me take your pic and Talib showing off his drank. I don't see anything wrong with that.

  • LadyJustice

    Im sure ALL of his wedding pictures didnt feature the henny bottle. lovely dress. congrats

  • mizzdallas

    I dont think its tacky, shyt they were gonna drink that Hen dog regardless if Hennessy sponored their wedding or not!

  • Charles

    It was not no 90 degrees on saturday........ oh and congrats who are they????? I give em 6 months

    HEY everybody

  • mizzdallas

    Oh btw love me some Talib Keweli him and Mos Def need to hook back up for the state of hip-hop!!!

  • licia

    congrats to them. i agree with lady justice.

  • Charles

    Who is checking for them, why would hennesy sponsor has(never)bens in this recession???????

    You need more people

  • mizzdallas

    @charles How u dowanng..? (in my wend williams voice)

  • Charles


    TIREDDDDDDDDDDD =[ and you?

  • kcicero

    Good Morning all. Congrats to them. Mizzdallas I second that motion, loves me some Talib and Mos.

  • iscream

    I wish somebody would sponser my life. I walk around with lables anyway. I wish the company paid me to do so.

    Maybe LV will sponser Tiny and TI's wedding since she is always advertising their stuff for free anyway.

    Not would that be tacky or Fierce!

  • Bird

    First of all CONGRATS to the happy couple!!!

    It's just a snapshot from the wedding. I'm sure Hennessy is not in their professional wedding pics. As an engaged woman trying to perform the miracle of having an affordable wedding that all of my family and friends can attend let me tell you I lick the feet of the receptionist at Hennessy to get them to pay for my wedding. It's ridiculously expensive no matter how you slice it.

  • Alana

    "I would not be living up to my reputation as a hater if I didn’t point out how tacky this wedding photo is"


    Sandra I love you!!! LOL

    While this photo may be leaning toward the "classless" side, I'm sure that they took plenty of other pictures minus the Hen bottle. At least he wasn't popping champagne and pouring it all over the bride. I'm sure that may happen at Jim Jones wedding or something...

  • Daisy

    Morning Fam!

    I do NOT like her wedding dress

    Congrat to the Happy Couple!

    @Ice I saw the game and it was good. Why is Derwin acting broke or low on funds? The entire elevator scene was

    @Mizz how was Chi town?

  • carmelita79

    maybe someone gave it as a gift and it was just part of the pictures that were released. sometimes its not always bad

  • KaraZ

    Why is Charles back? fcukery I tell you.

    Anyways Sandra quit complaining, I didn't see you offer any dollars to offset their wedding costs, so your opinion doesn't quite matter. A black man doing the right thing by his woman and making her legal is a beautiful thing and should be celebrated.

  • Peachizz

    Speaking on Wedding, My BFF's sister's wedding was Saturday,I'm proud to say I walked away with the "prize Bauquet" LOL

    She looks like a homie woman with a dress on!

  • Shauny

    o.k peeps, I saw Obsessed last night. Guess what, IMO Bey did her thing. In that trailor of the movie I saw/heard Bey but watching the whole movie I didn't. Ali Carter stole it as the crazy biotch but Bey held her own and cracked me up kicking her azz at the end. Idris was great as usual. I liked the movie and all of the performances.

    Her dress is cute, it's not something I'd pick but it isn't flat out ugly either.

  • LadyJustice


    i was wondering the same thing. what happened to the ring that she had at first? did she throw it away? why didnt he just give that same ring back to her? i cant wait for next weeks episode! do u feel sorry for kelly?

  • mizzdallas


    Im sooo tired and I dont think I will get any work accomplish today


    Hey! gal, chi-town was good, I was sooo happy to see my friend gal & her family its been three yrs since I last saw them and that was when her grandmother died.

  • Mspeng

    Why does that Hennessy bottle look so photoshopped into the pic??

  • iscream

    @ Kara I so agree with your comment.

    @ Daisy. Didn't he re injure his knee when her fought that guy Mel was dating? I think I remember his agent saying something about his money being funny now. You know football money is shakey money.

    @ Bird Lol I feel you girl. Good luck on the plaining.

    why did I see a pic of Usher's azz hanging out of a car window while there was another man sitting in the car? Why does anyone care about hoopz releasing a sex tape? Do people not have their own sex lives to care about. Everyone (well not everyone) has sex. Who cares!

    Hey Shauny good morning

  • mizzdallas

    @daisy & ladyj

    I think Derwin is just watching his pennies for the baby that he is about to have with jana, I thought this past episode was boring,


    I'm quite sure they took some nice pics w/out the Hen bottle Sandra,
    (Y you gotta start being like this so early?)

    Off Topic:
    Does any1 watch CandyGirls? If so, was lastweek episode the finale? I think I missed something. I could've sworn they had 1 more episode.

  • Sharonda

    It is all about personal choice.

  • licia

    Bird i would walk around in a dress shaped like a hennesey bottle if i had to . lmao

  • licia

    and congrats on the upcoming wedding .

  • ReadTheBlog

    I follow him on Twitter and he (major cornball) ain't said one thing about anything other than how good of a show was put on wherever he was. Go Figure...

    I may be wrong, but she favors a dude in drag.

  • Daisy

    @mizz I laughed the entire show. Glad you had fun in Chi town.

    @Lady I been asking about the 1st ring he gave her a few seasons back as well. I dont get it. I know he started a trust fund for the baby but I know he didnt put ALL his money in it.

    @ice Yes I remember him hurting his knee and all that and yes football money is funny unlike NBA money but still. The avg joe can and does buy a bigger ring than

    I am glad they are happy. I guess Janay will pop back up when she has the baby which should be sooner than later.

  • Daisy

    @Mizz I- I watch candy girls but I missed the fight and drama last week so I am not sure if that was the finale or not.

  • LadyJustice


    I was hoping it was coming on last night. maybe the switched the day the show airs. last week didnt seem like the finale at all. i was hoping to see some more fights. lol

    i forgot about derwins knee injury. they showed pics of melanie in her final wedding dress on twitter. its really pretty.

  • ReadTheBlog

    Bird, Two Words

    LAS VEGAS...

  • Daisy

    @Lady the dress she had on Fri was ok. She has a funky shape to me anyway though. She isn't fat just odd shaped. I think they may be rushing this wedding cause they aren't sure if they are coming back next season.

  • luvly1957


    On da Game he was injured he hurt his knee and the Sabers did not renew his contract that's why he's watching his money and Talib is da shyt!!!!!


    @ Daisy, yeah, u gotta catch up on that last episode, it was a good one and unexpected.

    @ LadyJustice, I was shock to see it didn't come on last night either. (What the hell was that Jersey Shore ish?!) It has to be another episode, it couldn't end with a bang like that. Or maybe their's another season????

  • iscream

    Can't argue with that Daisy, lol.

    & miss justice I do not feel sorry for Kelly. If she was hurt by Jason to the point she had to file for divorce I don't know why she would want to get back with him. He hasn't done anything to show her he has changed. He actually has moved on with his life. She needs to do the same.

    Poor lil Brit Brit. Its always hard on the kids but I don't believe in being in an unhealthy relationship for the sake of kids. It doesn't help in the grand scheme of things.

  • LadyJustice

    yes i think thats exactly whats happening. they just wanna bring some closure incase it is the last episode. with the last 4 episodes there should have been other episodes inserted in between those. oh well.

    U can see her dress here twitpic . com/4r3hf

  • Daisy

    People who are still in love with their wife/husband file for divorce everyday. Divorce does not always mean you no longer love your spouse. Kelly still loves Jason and he still loves her he may have "moved on" but don't beleive the hype. Men love to say women are needy but they tend to rebound much faster than women.

    That being said if they do come back next season Kelly and Jason can be replaced by a new couple and I would NOT miss them at

  • LadyJustice


    u know when she was making his smoothie... seems like she had a moment of "what the heck have i done" but yea u are right she was the one who wanted out, so she has to deal with it. i kinda want them to get back together... but i kinda dont cuz jason and stacy dash look cute together.

  • Daisy

    @Lady thanks just went and looked at the dress.

    I agree Staci and Jason make a cute couple indeed!

    sandra you need a medical minute on the dangers of dranking in the heat.

  • iscream

    @ Read the blog comment #34

    I2I... That's exactly what I plan to do.

    & then fly off to some beautiful Island.

  • Daisy

    @ice I plan to get married on the Island so I will already be I want a destination wedding less folks will

  • Shauny

    After going back and watching the season 1 and 2 episodes that I missed of The Game, I understood why Kelly was done with Jason. I used to be on his side until I caught those episodes. I think Jason didn't know what he had until he lost it and wanted it back. I think that even though he's feeling Stacey at the end of the day he wants his Kel.
    I hope they both are back next year.

  • flyqtnva

    **THEY paid you to say that didnt they?? I mean it just came out of no where and we all know she cant act** Let me find out you cant see or each his own iguess....I wish the couple all the best.

  • Daisy

    @Shauny I agree Jason was being a man and wanted everything on his terms and he did Kelly wrong as well and she was right to want and demand more from him. He wouldnt give it at that time so she felt she had no other choice/option but to file. They both did their dirt but she was willing to work on the marriage. I hope they come back as well.

  • flyqtnva

    Towards the end he tried hard but Kelly kept saying No so oh well...she married him like that & thought he would change

  • Daisy

    @Fly NOT so They BOTH married for the wrong reasons. They both acknowlegded that. I don't think he tried all that hard. He waited until she was fed up and was ready to walk BEFORE he started taking her serious. Until then he thought he could BUY her back but she kept telling him it was MORE than that.

  • iscream

    Uhm did we not forget he tried to pimp Kelly out.... aint no coming back from that.

    & if he wants Kelly back I guess she is hiding in the back of Stacey Dash throat.

    Overall Jason is still going to be Jason. He hasn't done anything to show her he has changed. She just wants him back now because he is with someone else. To that I would say my gain, Stacey's lost.

  • Shauny

    Yeah, he was wrong for doing the pimping Kelly out thing. I think in his eyes, she was dressed like a hoe so he was saying you wanna be a hoe I'm going to treat you like a hoe. He went too far though.

    I don't think she ever wanted to divorce him, she was just showing him that she wasn't going to put up with his chit any longer.

    Girl if they would've paid me I would been in the show giving standing ovations and shouting team Bey. It didn't come out of no where, people were on here talking about seeing it when it first came out and I only gave my review since I just saw

  • Sandra Rose

    Sandra I love you!!! LOL

    While this photo may be leaning toward the “classless” side, I’m sure that they took plenty of other pictures minus the Hen bottle.


    Let me say that this was the ONLY picture the publicist sent out to the blogs. Therefore, the liquor company footed the bill for the wedding and they paid a publicist to make sure you know that.

    i missed the game AGAIN....damn....3 weeks in a row now.... :(

    We are definately considering that. Friends of ours did it and the cost was only $1200 for airfare, hotel, ceremony and pics.
