Indie 500 featuring Talib Kweli
Talib Kweli: The socially conscious hip-hop legend broke on to the scene as one half of Black Star. A few years later, Jay-Z summed up the face of underground hip-hop on the Black Album with one simple rhyme—”If skills sold, truth be told/I’d probably be/lyrically/Talib Kweli.”
Pharoahe Monch: This Queens rapper got his start in the duo Organized Confusion before dropping solo hits such as “Simon Says” and “The Life,” both of which exhibit his gift for lyrics and tricky syllabication.
9th Wonder: When he’s not producing music for Erykah Badu, Ludacris, and Mary J. Blige or working in academia as a Hip Hop Professor, he’s weaving Curtis Mayfield and Al Green into socially-conscious tracks such as “Streets of Music” and “Piranhas.”
Rapsody: Also known as Marlanna Evans, this North Carolina-born rapper weaves clever wordplay into deft rhymes about hip-hop culture and current events.
Trayce Chapman: He’s a rising Denver hip-hop star with a folk singer’s name and a rolodex that includes collaborators Young Beatz and Treezy.
