Talib kweli - fuck the money

Uploaded by Sketch the Cow on May 18, 2016

The biggest idea Kweli conveys on this album is the destructive power of money. As a rapper with plenty of ardent stances , this agenda should come as no surprise. On the title track, he warns, “ When pursuit of the money is your only goal …  then you lose your soul “. He also weighs in police brutality, ISIS, and American greed on “Nice Things”, using the hook, “ this is why we can’t have nice things “, to break bad news to the world. In mainstream hip-hop, where money is seen as an end-all reward, Kweli stands alone as a rare and powerful voice. There is never any doubt that Kweli is being 100% on every bar, and even with potential unpopularity staring him down, he doesn’t seem the least bit concern. This album – even just its title – is the essence of Kweli: a deviant voice in a conformed world.
