Talib Kweli —
Quality ... LP MCA, 2002. New Copy 2LP (reissue)...
Just Sold Out!
Talib Kweli delivers the goods here on one of his best ever solo efforts – with thoughtful rhymes over tight, snappin' beats, and more than just a touch of soul to keep things nice! Guest appearances from Bilal, Black Thought, Mos Def, the Cocoa Brovaz, Pharoah Monche and Mos Def alongside production by the Soulquarians, Kanye West, DJ Quik, and Erik Krasno of Soulive (among others. . .) keep Quality fresh from start to finish. 15 tracks in all, including "Get by", "Shock Body", "Waitin For The DJ", "Talk To You", "Guerilla Monsoon Rap", "Put It In The Air", "The Proud" and "Where Do We Go". LP, Vinyl record album
A nice little single from E Kraz, aka Eric Krasno, guitarist for Soulive – featuring the mic skills of Breez Evahflowin' and Chali 2na on the funky, funky a-side! "Hot 2Nite" is a straight-up funky party vamp – with extra instrumentation from Soulive fellow Neal Evans on organ, plus some JBs modeled horns, drums and programming! Chali 2Na does his measured, J5 vocal boom on the main version, with E Kraz's official project partner Breez rockin' the remix. The flip has a tighter hip hop feel, with just E Kraz on the beats and Breez on the rhymes. Nice! 12-inch, Vinyl record
