    Deniro.
    Pacino really aint such a great actor like Deniro. lol anway i agree that Kweli vs. Mos is pretty much too close too call. maaaaaaaybbee I'm leaning towards Kweli, but it's hard. If any "faceoff" is a dead even tie it's these two.

    DeNiro >>> Pacino (Filmography)... but the few films Pacino's been in have brilliant performances...

    And Def and Kweli... they're different with almost the same subject matter in their lyrics... but I don't think anyone surpasses the other

    Kweli got this imo just on the strength of a better catalouge. Aside from Blackstar (which is a tie cause Talib is in the group) and Black on Both Sides... Mos Def albums suck.

    Personally I think Ecstatic >>> Revolutions Per Minute... these are their latest albums... so Def shouldn't be written off

    Yeah, Kweli's catalogue is a bit stronger though...

    My preference is for Mos Def, but Kweli has a stronger discography.

    They're best when they're together, that Black Star album is amazing, and that cut on Black on Both Sides is slick.

    Tough call, they're both so good.
