Mos Def & Talib Kweli Are Black Star is a critically acclaimed hip-hop album by the duo Mos Def and Talib Kweli. Both of the artists are known to be some of hip-hop's best lyricists and this album shows why. Mos Def and Talib Kweli rap about social issues, racial issues, general philosophy, and use intelligent lyrics to do so. The instrumentals have a lot of jazz influence, with some tracks having reggae influence on tracks such as Definition. The basslines that were produced by Hi-Tek (producer of the album) sounded great as well. Thieves in the Night is my favorite song off the album and has arguably the greatest verses from both Talib Kweli and Mos Def on it. I would give this album a 4.5/5. The album is one of the greatest hip-hop albums of all time because of the production, lyrics, and general emotions portrayed by the artists.

Excellent hip hop built around thoughtful socio-political (i.e. not juvenile or sexual) topics
