Talib is wise yo, around 12 minutes there is a metaphor where Nore talk about the drunk on the corner and Talib said "The Drink Champ"... It gets "over looked" and "over talked" Talib looked into Nore soul for 2 seconds...

Women don’t make 70 cents to every male dollar. Women and men make the same dollar for dollar or companies would only hire women because they could pay them 30% less! There would be no male workers! I wish they would stop spreading that. Women make less over a lifetime than men in the same roles due to taking more time off than men to raise kids or give birth, etc.... Stop spreading nonsense.

My personal Top 5 albums from each region of hip hop in ‘98 East: 5. Black Star (Talib & Mos Def) 4. N.O.R.E (NORE) 3.Capital Punishment (Big Pun) 2. ELE (Busta) 1.Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood (DMX) Midwest: 5.Devil Without A Cause (Kid Rock) 4. Headz or Tailz (Do or Die) 3. Heaven’s Movie (Bizzy Bone) 2. Mobstability (Twista) 1. Good Side, Bad Side (Crucial Conflict) South: 5.www.thug.com (Trick Daddy) 4. My Homies (Scarface) 3. Ghetto Fabulous (Mystikal) 2. Aquemini (OutKast) 1. 400 Degreez (Juve) West: 5. Element of Surprise (E40) 4. Kuruption (Kurupt) 3. War & Peace Vol 1. (Cube) 2. Rhythm-al-ism (Quik) 1. 40 Dayz & 40 Nightz (Xzibit) ‘98, and the late 90’s-early’00s in general was/is one of the best eras in hip hop. There was a nice balance of all regions releasing singles and albums; and a good mix between lyrical, street, club, and radio songs.

Oh, and the few albums I named that Kweli didn't, still ain't all of the albums. 98 had the most diverse number of artists in the history of hip hop. Period. And anyone can argue with me on that, but the list kills that argument. Soooooooo, deal with it. 😂😂😂😂

As Talib was explain on previlige . Listen we should all recite our solem oaths to eachother. Time has changed brothas. Walking the mile is not nature, walking with God is, but in minds ignorance they'd always find a bewildered Blackman. Why do we denounce the scripture..."because"... I can't believe folks so stupid this why the world won't move on. The scripture was TRANslated from Hebrew and Aramaic to greek then from tongues such as English French and Spanish later on. That one ideology that blacks have in America that is filed up using middle age brothas for radicalization marking practiced faith in America. We all children of God 🙏. How do a people without power claim something not comprehensible to the next...they don't get it we all at risk as Blackman. The influences. We've been on a crisis mission since b.i.g. and then people woke up. Most of y'all are still dreaming tapping the doors to purgatory. Life must move on. With privilege come responsibility.

44 million black people in the usa...270 million whites in the USA...out of a total population of 350 million roughly. Europe is slightly smaller than America. Russia has about 250 million whites..Europe has about 250 million whites...Africa has 1.6 billion people..Not all Africans are black; some are Arab in North Africa like Egypt and Morocco..Whites are in South Africa...Sorry Talib, the math isn't in your favor. If you add Latinos into the mix and consider them "black", we still fall short of white people. The majority race on Earth are Asians...1 out of every 5 people is Chinese. Indians are asians as well..2 billion people live there...It's 4 billion Asians on Earth, almost 5. 8 billion people total on earth...the other 3 billion are whites/blacks/everyone else. #Mathematics like Mos Def, thunny

Talib Kweli's pandering to women is a bit too PC and ridiculous, Nore and Dj EFN created a platform organically, Drink Champs wasn't build on the back of women, why would they need to be fighting hard for women to come on the show. It should be equal treatment, like they said they invited female and male in the hiphop community, who ever decides to come can come simple. They are not at fault for not having enough females on the show. Females don't need to come on this show as they can easily create their own shows, if they don't feel like they have been represented enough. It's pretty stupid to use this as example of male privilege.
Truck Turner

The same argument we make about black people need to do things for themselves and don't depend on other people needs to be applied to the women's movement as well let them do their own show and do their own thing they don't necessarily have to come to a man's stage
