Talib Kweli Lyrics


Few hip-hop artists have made as profound an impact in as
short a time as Talib Kweli. After releasing a few revered
singles with partner DJ Hi-Tek, Kweli teamed with fellow
New Yorker Mos Def for 1998's Mos Def And Talib Kweli Are
Black Star, one of the best albums of the '90s. In addition
to introducing the world to two of the most talented
rappers of their generation, the album—along with
likeminded recordings from The Coup and Lauryn Hill—played
a major part in bringing a sense of spirituality, social
conscience, and moral More...

    ------ About the song State Of Grace performed by Talib Kweli

"But the problem we face seems so great
That we can't escape so we accept our faith" should be "...accept our FATE"

"If you ain't using all the talents God provided you with
For the ...of man" missing word is "BETTERMENT of man"

"They say she exaggerate when she ..." I *think* the missing words are "holler rape," but I'm not sure.

"Her entire gradutaion was a ...situation" should be "...a DIRE
situation."

    ------ About the song Ms. Hill performed by Talib Kweli

By listening to Kweli spit rhymes many rappers talk about illuminati inspired lyrics which when they don't do will be targeted.Like 2Pac turned who turned his back on the truth while knowing he's gon get gunned down by fools out of the music industry.Many acts like to talk about guns cause they finance by the Mafia.Many artists like Black Thought,Talib,Mos Def and many other make good sense.So people out of the music industry forget they make million,but unlike many mainstream,they don't brag about how many women the slept with or how much money they make.Hip hop is influenced by R'nb and they lay rap lyrics.

Who cares what the definition of hip hop is. if your gonna sit here and talk about what the definition is on a song like ms hill. then neither of you know what it is. becuase you know what whatever fuckin genre this is, and whatever the rapper is doing, this is a real artist spilling his heart onto a beat about maybe the realest artist there ever was. fuck hip hop. fuck rap. love music. especially music made by talib and lauren. educate yourselves.

    ------ About the song I Try (featuring Mary J. Blige) performed by Talib Kweli

An upside down kingdom where life is just not fair (upside down kingdom)
Some many sufferin' cuz deep inside they're scared (so scared)
Fear pumped into their veins to keep them from their destiny
Where would they be if you and I don't care?

There's no true definition as to what "Hip Hop" is...that's what makes it so great. It can be about whatever. As an art form, it is truly about just expressing thoughts/feelings through music. Technically, you're all wrong by trying to confine Hip Hop to strict parameters...Hip Hop strives to be just the opposite!

It's whatever. | Reviewer: Brendan Malone
    ------ About the song Ms. Hill performed by Talib Kweli

It's no big deal, but i don't think either of you guys who think you now what you're talking about really know what hip-hop is. What I got from reading your comments is that hip-hop is underground and rap is mainstream which isn't true. Or, that hip-hop is creative and original and rap is all about hoes, drugs, and ice, which isn't true. Talib Kweli, like almost every MC, has songs in both hip hop and rap genres. It's whatever though, you guys can keep talking about stuff you don't know about if you want.

    ------ About the song Get By performed by Talib Kweli

Hey emidio

The song samples Nina Simone's 'sinnerman'. That's her voice wailing at the start of the tune too.

If you listen to Nina Simone's version, you'll see that Talib Kweli has reworked the sample so brilliantly that it is actually a new melody. That is one of the things that amazes me about this song!

Fucking Idiot | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song Ms. Hill performed by Talib Kweli

To the guy who doesn't understand the difference between rap and hip hop!

To get started. You are correct with what you said "that's what rap is you idiot"

But you are totally wrong when it comes to hip hop. The difference being hip hop is original and rap is not. Rap steal lyrics from other songs and adds there own pimps, hoes, drugs and alcohol lyrics afterwards.

Talib is on the fence of hip hop and rap or in other words is in the process of becoming main stream, some people refer to this as becoming a sell out but it all about the money right? Talib is the shit and will be for a long time, he is making his dollars now and will lay low for a while to get out of mainstream and then come back with some kick ass shit just like he has before. So before you go screaming "so b 4 yall open your mouth know what hip hop is." YOU should know what hip hop is! By the way, I love how you could spell lyricist but not "fucken", idiot!
