Talib Kweli Peace Of Mind
- Words: Lonnie Forester
- Label: Hi-Rise
Producer Madsol-Desar swipes a page from Kanye West and all the other cats copping sped-up soul loops, but his samples add a bittersweet tinge to Kweli's three vignettes about life and people in Brooklyn. Like the vintage soul it's built on, "Peace Of Mind" offers an introspective moral narrative. Similarly, Gift of Gab's "Rat Race" (Quannum Projects) shines light on a hectic rap life.
