    Black Star - Mos Def and Talib Kweli
    Just listened to Black Star yesterday for the first time in a while.

    that is one of the best rap albums ever released. Every song is crazy.

    Nastradamus is cool but no.

    I remember when Black Star came out. I saw them perform twice. As an elder that grew up in the Public Enemy/BDP Self destruction era, I felt like Black Star was for white hipsters. That's my opinion. I remember all of my white friends were saying Black Star was the greatest thing since sliced bread but I just didn't feel it. It seemed forced to me.

    Not saying Nastradamus is/was better

    I don't remember making this thread but I swear, every white hipster I knew preferred Black Star over Jay Z and DMX.

    In fact, I was living in Boston at the time and Boston is backpacker central. There's a lot of college kids that, for whatever reason, prefer intellectual rap over club/gangsta rap.

    It was sickening the way these white hipsters would ogle over Black Star. And then when that Talib Kwelis and Hi Tek album came out you would have thought it was the second coming of Jesus.

    Black Star was better than Jay & DMZ

    White hipsters like anything indie, underground, counterculture, "intellectual" etc

    But that's a bad reason to dismiss Black Star, which is fundamentally on some pro-black shit, even if white people with white guilt complexes wanna be "down". Rawkus era conscious rap is closely connected to the SoulQuarian/neosoul movement in the mid to late 90s, which all comes from left-of-center, largely college educated / art school blacks.

    Ironically, Pitchfork only gave Black On Both Sides an 8.7, but among true hip-hop heads it was and is a classic (for reference, rapreviews gave it a 10 at the time, which is a site that doesn't really cater to the hipster set). I feel like hipsters got more on the bandwagon when Kanye West rolled around.
