Let‘s face it: Talib Kweli puts out more mixtapes and albums per year than most consumers can keep up with. But this new "sucka free" mix CD is certainly one of his most worthwhile releases yet. While many fans and critics were on the fence about his last album, The Beautiful Struggle, this brisk, 12-track disc features little to be uncertain about. Kweli calls attention with his articulate flow as he uncovers his long trek through the record industry ("Right About Now") and even pleads to the missing-in-action Lauryn Hill to step back to the mic ("Ms. Hill").
