    i was a bit disappointed with the R.E. album. after the black star album i don't think they could match the dopeness.

    Agreed although i think the Reflection Eternal album was dope 2.

    But him and Mos are on a new level. They are making more "Pop" songs because they have to. They cant be on that dope black star level because of their popularity

    it doesn't bother me if someone gets popular, but if they get popular with a dope album (a la nas with illmatic) then goes pop thinking that's what they have to do to stay popular then that's pretty wack

    i saw kweli a few months back.. he got to the venue pretty late and the crowd was drunk and tired of waiting... so some drunk asshole asks him why he's late and then smashes him in the face with a beer bottle. he goes on stage saying "fuck that shit.. show's cancelled! everybody go the fuck home!" then jumps off stage to give the dude that did it a few blows. we stuck around some more after a lot of people already left, and what ended up happening is once they dealt with the cops hauling the drunk dude off, kweli's manager musta told him it would cost to much to refund all the tickets, so he went ahead with the show and rocked the place.

    with a welt on his forehead the size of a quarter.
