Saw Talib Kweli and Lupe Fiasco last night, on the birthday-eve of Hip-Hop! Great show, but I didn't know much of the music. I know of Talib from Black Star and his few songs with MF DOOM. I've heard Lupe discuss his appreciation for Aesop Rock, probably my favorite living rapper.Any Talib or Lupe fans here that can let me know which albums to consider getting?
Maybe someone here can set me straight on this:On another music forum, someone posted in a hip hop thread, "Hip hop has been around for so long, I find it funny whenever haters complain about rap today". I responded by saying that not everyone who does not like hip hop is a hater. I said I don't care for hip hop but that doesn't mean I hate it. I said I feel the same way about opera. I'm not a fan of opera, but I certainly respect the work and don't hate it.One of the moderators there removed my post and blocked me from posting on that thread for "trolling".Does that sound like trolling? I think calling people "haters" is more like trolling. I was majorly offended by being accused of trolling.

First heard this and added audio version to a Playlist about 6 months ago. It has been stuck in my head for the last month. Like a lot of their stuff but this is my favorite of theirs.https://youtu.be/IdNxeepSpuk?si=bd_zwaeHTRcxOKdM
