Anthony Bourdain's celebrated show "No Reservations" will soon be coming to an end, but its last episode does the series justice. Talib Kweli is featured on the program, discussing the cultural changes that've happened in Brooklyn over the past several years.

During a meal which included andouille ravioli and duck, the two talked about Brooklyn and it's changing identity. "I'm ignorant about what's going on in Brooklyn," said Kweli. "Where I moved to now is by Myrtle Ave. When I was growing up it was called 'Murder Ave.' I walk down there now there's an organic grocery and it's like white guys with beards. Which, I'm not mad at it. But it's something that's so different didn't recognize it."

The final episode airs on Monday, November 5. Check out what else Kweli had to say in the video above.
