Remember when Talib Kweli was good? I don't. This, along with Reflection Eternal were as close as he would get. Mos Def was actually good, even if only for two albums. This is from right before underground hip hop became xerox' of anything Rawkus put out in the late 90's. But this will give you that vibe of hope that hip hop had again during that time, if only for a fleeting moment.
