On the other hand...

I recently picked up the new Talib Kweli album Eardrum and if you have not, I recommend you do the same thing. This piece was inspired by a particular verse where Talib had described how his old record label kept trying to categorize him in different Hip Hop genres. Categories such as the "Angry rapper " , " Backpack rapper" or " Conscious rapper". But I feel if you are familiar with his catalog of work you would realize that he is universal, and if I had to classify him ... he would be put in the category of Dope MC.
