Talib Kweli

Sunday, October 5

Sweet justice has finally begun to bestow its grace upon Talib Kweli, one of the most talented and most commercially overlooked MC's playing the game today. Producing consistently intelligent, well-constructed hip hop for over a decade, both as half of the legendary Black Star duo he formed with Mos Def as well as a producer, performer and entrepreneur, even Jay-Z was forced to pay homage to Kweli on his The Black Album: "If skills sold, truth be told/I'd probably be, lyrically, Talib Kweli." And if even the big Hova is tipping his hat to you, well, you deserve to be as popular as he is.
