Talib Kweli - The Beautiful Struggle

...The Beautiful Struggle revels in hip-hop's recent emergence as an iconic powerhouse while reintroducing Brooklyn native and "three time Nobel prize winner" Talib Kweli as one of the genre's most vocal supporters and sharpest antagonists. This duality has always been present in Kweli's catalog: His music embraces the binding value of truth as much as it documents his divergence from the methods traditionally used to uphold it. But that's one reason why The Beautiful Struggle makes such a curious addition to his oeuvre: It again challenges his unquestioned integrity in its choice of producers while re-evaluating his political poignancy for the new audiences they open him up to. - by Jamin Warren, pitchfork.com
