Talib Kweli Get By
- Words: Ross Hogg
- Label: Rawkus
Think conscious rap is dead? Let Kweli take you to church on this one. Over producer Kanye West's beautiful-yet-bumpin' piano loop and a sample of Nina Simone's "Sinnerman," Kweli spits human, heartfelt verses about modern-day pitfalls and struggles. He pulls it off not by preaching, but by praying with you. Can I get an "amen"?
