Happy Birthday To Black Thought & Talib Kweli
Today is the birthday of two of the game’s most recommended lyricists, Black Thought and Talib Kweli. The incredible Roots frontman turns forty-eight, while the Black Star veteran ages triumphantly into forty-four.
Two senior statesmen, with decent discographies underneath their separate belts. For Thought, his pedigree as an essayist needs no presentation. Between his work with The Roots and the wonderful ten-minute Funkmaster Flex free style, many still consider him to flaunt the most pleasant pen-game in hip-hop; an incessant guest of the “most loved rapper’s preferred rapper” club.
Despite the fact that Talib’s melodic yield has reduced generally, the continuous slayer of Nazis is still a force to be deal with – both behind the mic and on Twitter. In case we forget his very own excellent work, which include the solo album Quality, the Hi-Tek joint project Reflection Eternal, and the Mos Def joint effort Mos Def and Talib Kweli Are Black Star.
In truth, Thought and Kweli really teamed up on the lyrical invasion “Guerrilla Monsoon Rap,” basically tuning in for any so-called bar enthusiast (it’s created by Kanye West, at that).
Happy birthday to the two lyric experts!
