Talib Kweli/NIKO IS/DJ Spintelect/Muamin Collective/Doc Remedy

Known to some degree for his engaged social commentary — particularly since the shooting death of Michael Brown in 2014 — Talib Kweli has always held a finger to the pulse of the American consciousness. From the late-'90s hip-hop duo Black Star (with Mos Def) through years of a successful solo and collaborative career, Kweli has studded the rap game with thinking man’s songcraft that keep listeners’ heads bobbing and toes tapping. He pulls fans into this dark and uncertain decade with tracks like “Rare Portraits” and “The Wormhole,” tunes that blend autobiographical chops with a harrowing awareness of how twisted — and beautiful — this world can be.
