Talib Kweli Addresses 'Girl Slap' Rumors

I'm a passionate dude and sometimes women get passionate," Kweli said on the radio. "She got out of pocket and she got checked. It was an ugly situation for both parties and it didn't make either one of us look good. I'm glad its over with."

The rapper admitted that the argument had started prior to arriving at the 50 Cent rapper's home, but boiled over after the couple began drinking.

Nevertheless, the rapper emphasized that the relationship hadn't suffered to the point where he would split with his girl.

"That was something small compared to the relationship," Kweli said. "She wasn't trying to play me. She was upset and something I did so she was being disrespectful, because she was upset about something that had happened before."

He said days after the incident, he began getting pages from friends.
