    Mos Def.....

    Astronomy....

    Black like my baby girl's stare
    Black like the veil that the muslimina wear
    Black like the planet that they fear, why they scared?
    Black like the slave ship that later brought us here
    Black like the cheeks that are roadways for tears
    that leave black faces well traveled with years
    Black like assassin crosshairs
    Blacker than my granddaddy armchair
    He never really got no time to chill there
    Cause this life is warfare, warfare

    A SOLDIERS DREAM...

    Your eyes are too careful,
    Collecting it all arranging it all;
    Surgically, robotically, exactly.
    I can’t look at you right now
    But that doesn’t matter because
    You can look at me and the longer that
    I don’t return your gaze,
    The harder that your gaze
    Starts to run across my back
    Like a nervous policeman’s hands:
    Brisk, intent, anxious for discovery.
    If discretion is a fortress
    Then you’re threatening to destroy it
    By simply standing at the gates
    And refusing to leave.
    I can’t look at you right now,
    But you can look at me. Do you see me?

    Mighty Mos..

    I think he proved it on 'Black Star'..Mos has sooo many memorable verses on that album..

    The closest Talib would come to Mos is on 'Train of Thought'..back when Kweli was still DOPE as fuck..

    I think Mos is better overall, but Kweli has the catalog to support a claim that he's the better emcee of the two.

    Nah, I think Kweli's gotten better up now because the fact that he actually fixed his flow... He used to jumble words into bars and rush 'em cuz he put too many words in a bar... He fixed that and his rhymes are still just as ill... Kweli's better...

    Talib since Mos switched the style. Old style Mos was my favourite MC.

    Kweli's delivery is STILL lacking on occassion while Mos' is always flawless. Kweli still sounds like he forces his lines and even forces multi's and forces wordplay and metaphors sometimes.

    Mos Def is a better overall rapper. I find more insight in his lyrics most of the time though Kweli's often appear better when it comes to "technical" lyricism. Not to mention Mos has one of the best deliveries out there.

    Still a big fan of Kweli, though.

    I disagree... I find Mos Def's delivery CAN be boring... Very monotonous and deep... I like when he sings though (sometimes)... And I disagree on this too... Kweli has VERY VERY "insightful" lyrics...
