    Talib Kweli is an excellent rapper! Here, he even tries to go mainstream with Get By and comes out with a solid result. The only things are that the production is not ideal and even though I love his flow, it gets out of hand sometimes. In my opinion, he is a top 5 lyricist ever to pick up a mic.

  1. He manages a harder edge without completely sacrificing credibility.

    Kweli wins by spitting knotty verbiage over high-test beats. [Feb 2003, p.99]
  3. Quality is proof that intelligent hip-hop need not lack excitement, soul, or genuine emotion; it's one of the best rap albums of a year with no shortage of winners.
