Talib Kweli is one of the most prodigious and prolific hip-hop artists of the past two decades. From his early underground tapes to his work with Mos Def in Black Star and his spotless solo run, Kweli has a been a powerful voice in hip-hop. He formed the project Hip Hop for Respect with Mos Def way back in 2000 in response to the officer-involved shooting of 22-year-old Amadou Diallo in New York. Kweli remains an intelligent activist, speaking out against police brutality while tirelessly recording and touring. Last year alone saw his name attached to no less than five releases—there's no better time for Talib Kweli to be on a prolific run. MARK LORE Also see My, What a Busy Week!
