|Kweli means "truth" in Swahili|
In my mind, Kweli is by far the most innovative lyricist alive in the game today. I might even go as far as to say that his intricate, rhymes, metaphors and phraseology are near impossible to top. Then again, I'm a sucker for rap that's actually intelligent and doesn't effuse misogyny, drug abuse and spinning "22s."
Kweli is also know for his collaborations with Cincinnati-based DJ "Hi-Tek" --the duo joined forces to become Reflection Eternal and has cranked out two full studio albums over the years, as well as a smattering of singles.
|Reflection Eternal is best known, by far, for "The Blast"|
Anyone who calls themselves a rap/hip-hop pundit knows just how talented Kweli truly is. (Few people know that Kweli was one of Kanye West's biggest influences while he was coming up through the music industry).
So, without further ado, check out some awesome tracks of this infamous "BKMC."
"History" feat. Mos Def
"Strangers" by Reflection Eternal

P.S. Whatever happened to the "Talib Kweli" movie? Seriously.
