Few hip-hop artists have made as profound an impact in as short a time as Talib Kweli. After releasing a few revered singles with partner DJ Hi-Tek, Kweli teamed with fellow New Yorker Mos Def for 1998′s Mos Def And Talib Kweli Are Black Star, one of the best albums of the ’90s. In addition to introducing the world to two of the most talented rappers of their generation, the album—along with likeminded recordings from The Coup and Lauryn Hill—played a major part in bringing a sense of spirituality, social conscience, and moral balance back to hip-hop. Since Black Star’s release, Kweli has been busy, purchasing a bookstore with Def, traveling to Cuba as part of the Cuban Rap Festival, performing in countless benefit concerts, and helping to organize the Hip Hop For Respect project to raise awareness of police brutality in the wake of the Amadou Diallo shooting.
