When the Mighty Mos Def and Talib Kweli form as one, you get one the most dynamic duos of all time (at least in my opinion). But how could anyone argue?!? These brothers are no joke bringing such a well rounded attack like nothing I’ve seen in a long time or read about from the past.
From Mos Def starring as medical innovator Vivien Thomas and Brother Sam on Dexter, to Talib collaborating on dozens of albums, forming a new group Idle Worship resurrecting the previously under-appreciated singer Res, and appearing on numerous documentaries, these two are breaking down the barriers on hip hop culture in a unique way.
The antipication for their next album is beyond comprehension for me. I remember when the first album dropped back in the late 90’s, I believe it changed me forever. For them to bless Cleveland at the House of Blues, how could anyone ask for a better gift? The concert did not dissappoint. The energy was intense and they did every song I could dream of, including Thieves in the Night, my all-time favorite. A++
