Amazing. The skill, the lyricism, the truth, the flow. Wish more knew about him, and more made music like him. Absolutely amazing, and probably my favorite MC along with Andre 3000. They both can freestyle, do long verse, short bars, features, more aggressive, celebratory, tell stories, or political. Also, NOBODY is dumb enough to challenge either of them!

I lover rappers that actually talk about true life problems and not just hoes and Bentleys and marijuana every song
I start a conversation based on a general observation. . . . . . . .
Why is he underground he is the best rapper lyrically it has complete clear messages in them like 2pac except 2pac talks about being a gangster most of the time and b.i.g same thing sometimes they get a little off topic but that happens to some of the greatest rappers at times one of the greats in front of jayz behind nas nas then b.i.g then DMX then 2pac this is in my opinion but yeah see i got off topic so yeah talib kweli is great
Talib is one of the most intelligent underground rappers
Talib Kweli is an very incredible, intelligent underground rapper! I need to listen to more of his music. I love positive rap. F**k that fake s**t. This song is so vivid, so true. Dope :)

Im an artist and i appreciate all of you who as well appreciate this real hip hop. Hip hop is not dead and it never will be. It has just been hidden the same way the truth is hidden from the masses. Why? Because real hip hop is the truth. . . One love. . . Peace
is that Mary J.?

if you cant spit,put the mic down Drake,soulij a boy,gucci mane,etc.
definitely agree w/ rosetta
this isn't the type of rap you can 'live' vicariously through, it makes you look at yourself and live your own life
RAP OF THIS MAGNITUDE NEVER MAKES IT TO RADIO....'NU F F SAID
this kid is crazy with the skills man.

He has mad skills, but my peers are all stuck on artist like Drake, Soulija Boy, Gucci Mane, etc. They don't take the time to listen to lyrics, they only hear beats, and catchy jingles. The radio stations in my city doesn't play any of his music so I have stopped listening to them.
SMH.
he has skill why he not more well-known?
Raw need to be on the radio
