Talib Kweli The Proud

Half of the dynamic duo known as Blackstar, Talib Kweli is one of the most intellectual and impressive Mc's rhyming today. Kweli, known as a polictical rapper, caught some negative critiscism for his sophomore effort The Beautiful Struggle, for having a sound unlike his own with potential club joints, which totally missed in my honest opinion. Being the gifted lyricst that he is, Kweli will always display eye-opening bars, but mainstream pop music is not exactly what we look to this Mc for. We look to Kweli for that revolutionary and controversial sound that he does better than most (not Mos), and that has placed him on a higher plateu than most rappers in the game. That sound that be aquired by listening to Quality and Eardrum, and by reading below. What's real, we can get In The Club from 50 Cent.

Hear It!

Niggaz with knowledge is more dangerous than than niggaz with guns
They make the guns easy to get and try to keep niggaz dumb
Target the gangs and graffiti with the Prop 21
I already know the deal but what the fuck do I tell my son?
I want him livin right, livin good, respect the rules
He's five years old and he still thinkin cops is cool
How do I break the news that when he gets some size
He'll be percieved as a threat or see the fear in they eyes
It's in they job description to terminate the threat
So 41 shots to the body is what he can expect
The precedent is set, don't matter if he follow the law
I know I'll give my son pride and make him swallow it all (damn!)
Fuck the pigs! I think the pigs killed Big and 'Pac too
If they didn't they know who did, they got to!
Who they serve and protect, nigga not you
Cops shot off of ten G's but they got glocks too
Let you protect yourself, or better yet respect yourself
Straight into the hospital is where you gotta check yourself
They be gettin tips from snitches and rival crews
Doin them favors so they workin for the drug dealers too
Just business enforcers with hate in they holsters
Shoot you in the back, won't face you like a soldier
Kurt Loder asked me what I say to a dead cop's wife
Cops kill my people everyday, that's life
