He's been in my top 3 favorite MCs for many years now. I don't see that ever changing either.

Been a big fan of his since the Blackstar album. Going to his show here on the 8th, its gonna be fuckin live.

ive also been a fan for some time now.

got to say, that i think "Quality" is possibly his best effort lyrically, seems to be over looked alot though.

so many tracks from that were my favourites for whatever year it came out (2000/2001?)

i havent listened to him recently though, i heard some stuff from his recent mix tape and it seemed like he was trying to cram to many words into each bar.

i'll still check out his work though.

I've only got BlackStar and Reflection Eternal but they are both classics, Talib Kweli is ill. I'm definitely gonna pick up Eardrum, the songs I've heard so far are sick.

I think he is a decent mc but to be honest he never did much for me. I own a couple of his albums including Blackstar but I for the most part find him very un-inspiring, I always prefered mighty mos over talib.

I really like Kweli and I'm gonna pick up Eardrum when it drops but I gotta agree with Tauro in that Mos Dwef is far iller.

Yeah, Mos Def is better, but that's not to undermine Kweli. I used to be on a kind of backpacker mentality where he was one of the greatest, but looking back in retrospect, he's not great, just damn good. Probably top 30.

Train of Thought and BlackStar are classic material.

He's cool.. but I find he struggles sometimes when he's not doing a colabo with a producer or another MC. Train of Thought and Blackstar are straight classics, but I don't think he's dropped a solo thats classic. Definately dope though.

Yeah Talib's dope. Missed him in London with Jean Grae the other day - fuckin annoying.

The Liberation EP with Madlib was nice.

Is it just me, or did Kanye kinda bite Talib somewhat style wise when he started rapping (but not reach anything like the same heights)?

one of the only true MC's left in the game. never disappoints, always makes you think, and can rip a mic up no matter what the beat, flow, or lyrics. he will go down as a legend

fuck eardrum (it is tight though) but you need Quality. that album is a straight up classic. easily his best (solo) record. shit is absolutely stunning

Quality is kinda slept on but that was a great Cd, went a different direction from Train of Thought but was definetly focused and ill as fuck, alot of stand-out tracks on that one

Thought that beat for Gun Music was fuckin sick

i slept for so long on Quality. i had mad people telling me it was incredible and i was like "yeah sure whatever'. then i got blunted one night and started it from the beginning and holy shit i was floored. FEEL THE RUSH FEEL THE RUSH. then that kanye joint Good To You, there's a fucking gem right there
