Great review pos
Oh and congrats on 50


This was okay I would have to say his weakest release. It did have some moments though you are right. Self Savior is amazing.

Will definitely looking into this, although Kweli is nowhere as good as Nas or KRS One his rhymes always breathe some good into the staleness of modern day hip-hop.

yea Talib raps about the same shit a lot, but that goes for about 95% of rappers out there... I like him in Black Star and Reflection Eternal, but everything after Quality by him solo-wise was pretty uninspiring from what I've heard.

Talib always slays when he is a guest on other records, but is only okay when he does his solo stuff.

just skimmed through the review, but I noticed a couple mistakes:

"Granted Kweli's been granted"

It's not a huge deal because of the differences between grammar in the United States and England, but in the U.S., periods and commas always go inside quotation marks.

"'Mr International' represents the first serious flaw with the album however; there's nothing truly criminal..."
Supposed to be, "'Mr International' represents the first serious flaw with the album; however, there's nothing truly criminal..."

(or to be fair, watch the mainstream cast an easy eye over him)
watched

"but there are little moments here and there where everything just feels a little empty."

"But there doesn't seem to be anything higher for Talib to achieve though,"

My mind just automatically sees it as a grammatical mistake because of my upbringing.

I'm probably one of the worst self editors, and I always have this habit of repeating words in the same sentence. Much appreciated Dostoevsky
