Throwback Thursdays!

This week is Reflection Eternal/Train of Thought by Talib Kweli and Hi-Tek. This was right around the time i was finding out what REAL hip hop was. Kweli -- who's name literally means "seeker of truth" -- also owns a small bookstore in Brooklyn and is more than just an average MC, being also a key to the Mos Def collaborational LP Black Star.

Kweli really comes out on this album with his lyrical skills and Hi-Tek's beats are spot on. All tracks are dope no filler just a really good flowing album. Lot's of soul went into this album thats for sure. If you like music you should own this cd. 6/5

This album dropped on May 18th 2010 and was long awaited. This album is pretty much Reflection Eternal/Train of Thought part 2. It's just as good. It is not legendary yet so i give it a 5/5 and when it does i will give it a 6.
