Talib Kweli

How many people can get compliments from Jay-Z? Not many… How many get them in songs on platinum selling records? Even fewer…

Talib Kweli is one of those very few, getting that great compliment on Jay-Z’s Moment of Clarity, where Hova said “If skills sold, truth be told/I’d probably be, lyrically, Talib Kweli.” Sick Right???? Well Kweli’s response wawsn’t to say thank you or anything, it was to respond in verse as well with “If lyrics sold then truth be told, I’d probably be just as rich and famous as Jay-Z” on his song Ghetto Show.

Once again, because of studying restrictions, that is all i really want to let myself say so here are a couple tracks.

    Kweli is sick. West (some of it anyway), Fiasco, early Nas – that’s where the heart and soul of intelligent hip hop is.
