Format: Audio CD
I can comfortably say Talib Kweli is one of the greatest artist I've ever listened to. A lot of you may think I'm absurd, and I would agree with my absurdity if I were to state this in 2006, but this is 2013. Talib Kweli stands out from the other rap artist due to his progression as a musician. Since his release with Mos Def in 1998, his growth has been a linear slope upwards. His craft, lyrics, creativity, and diligence earns my respect. Actually, he is my favorite rap artist because his style is original, liberal, and aggressive. Never in his career did he try to sound like another rap artist or change his style for the pursuit of money.

Going back to the title for my review, yes Talib Kweli surprised me again. Talib Kweli surprised me the first time when he released the prequel to this album, Gutter Rainbows(2011). Beginning 2011 when I read that Talib was going to release a prequel to this album, I was not satisfied because I thought he had the potential to create an album just as good as Eardrum, which was on my top 5 favorite hip hop albums at the time, and the word prequel didn't stick well with me well. After I listened to Gutter Rainbows, It instantly cracked my top 5 list and soon after, became my favorite hip hop album of all time and that's saying something big since my top 5 list includes:
2) Notorious B.I.G. - Ready to Die
3) Lupe Fiasco - Food & Liquor 1
4) Little Brother - The Minstrel Show
5) The Roots - Do You Want More
Honorable Mentions: Talib Kweli - Ear Drum

Gutter Rainbows was a HUGE surprise for me. I think I am one of the few people who praise Gutter Rainbows highly and that is unfortunate because the album is flawless.

This album is worth coppin because Talib lyrics speaks volume and I know some say the beats are simplistic yet the his thoughts encompassed in the tracks are phenomenal it's better than 95% of the albums released this year.

Talib Kweli is a name that I've heard knocked around for quite a few years now. This knowledge of him came around at a time when the world at large,and therefore the world of music,was beginning to circle back around to a more forward thinking point of few. Hip-hop music emerged in the pop world roughly around the time I was born. It was "alternative music": an alternative to commercial considerations forced upon many other artists in the post disco era. Its progressed and regressed alternately and in phases. It began with a party crew mentality similar to disco. Grandmaster Flash & Melle Melle changed all that. Then came Run DMC,LL Cool J,Def Jam and hip-hop (or rap as most people called it then) reached its commercial peak. The 90's bought a musical maelstrom of bitter gangsta rap,the "daisy age" hip-hop of the Bohemian fringe and conscious/political hop-hop. After 9/11,that holding pattern in the music took hold. After the 2008 election,hip-hop has again begun to move forward. That movement-reflected by the works of Common and the like, is moving the genre forward towards a heavier album oriented medium people like OutKast were on the threshold of in the late 90's with records such as [[ASIN:B00000BKI1 Aquemini]. And Talib Kweli,an artist whom I've never actually heard is making his own contributions to that progression of hip-hop with this new album.

The album starts out with "Human Mic",a beautifully cinematic loop of orchestration and piano where Talib lays out his creative manifesto for all to hear. The Brooklyn natives' home city of NYC,Tutankhamun,Chubacabra's and other references both realistic and relevatory are blended together in hi fast paced,busy-voiced style of rapping.

I'm a fan of Kwe. With that said I can be extremely critical of him I feel as an artist. I don't have the right, but I feel as though I at least am entitled to a say. All of these tracks are bangers... & that's par for the course with Kwe lately. His albums have been a bit too frequent imo. So they start off really quite strong but tend to fall off later in the effort. With that said though, this is still considerably stronger than 100% of what's being played on the airwaves & honestly I'm speaking almost strictly of BEATS. If this whole album was produced by Pete Rock & Madlib & NOTTS my opinion would be different. Kwe has NEVER had an issue with lyrics. You won't be disappointed if you buy this but just know, its far from a classic.

Talib delivers as usual with the lyrics and I appreciate the the selective taste in tracks. It is a quality album but it is not his best. It will be extremely hard to top Black Star, Beautiful Struggle, & Quality. He is still Top 10 Alltime in my list.

Talib is a real lyricist. With thought provoking conscious rhymes that all hip hop lovers can learn from and groove to. Keep up the great work. I don't think this album was his best work, but it is still hot.

I just bought this great album but why is the mp3 auto rip version of this album edited with all the profanity blocked out. I don't like edited music, it takes away from the feel of it. did anybody else have this issue? Now im wondering if the physical copy that im going to get in the mail is going to be edited or not.
