With the exception of maybe Guster — the band that exclusively debuted their new album on the site — you’d be hard-pressed to find an artist who has embraced the insanely addictive Turntable.fm more than Talib Kweli. He’s been hanging out there a lot in recent weeks, playing music with fans and just being a coolass dude. And now that the virtual DJing social media site has decided to start issuing verified accounts, ala Twitter, Kweli’s passion for Turntable.fm is being rewarded with its first verified account.
Apparently one of the perks of verified account status on the site is a personalized avatar like the one on the far left above. The Turntable.fm folk unveiled it to Kweli when he visited their offices earlier today…
Eat your heart out, The Throne.
