Reseña de álbum

Something's not right when a high compliment — one laid down on wax, no less! — from a giant like Jay-Z doesn't set off a major sales spike. Such is the case with Talib Kweli, a phenomenal MC who has only flirted with mainstream acceptance, despite being admired by a host of harder-edged platinum artists. Rather than try to ride out that slow if steady momentum and see where it takes him, Kweli takes the power into his own hands and grabs for the brass ring. The Beautiful Struggle is far from a 180 for him, but it's just out of character enough to be awkward. Whether he's attempting to bridge the underground to the mainstream or simply pull away from the former, the results aren't wholly convincing. Not only is Kweli attempting to alter the way in which he's perceived through his own verses; he's also been keeping some unlikely company — a (superior) prealbum mixtape featured guest spots from Fabolous, Styles P, and G-Unit addition Shawn Penn. More than once on this album, Kweli's as anxious to lose his backpacking image as a fourth grader at 3 p.m. On the title track, he declares, "They call me the political rapper even after I tell 'em I don't f*ck with politics, I don't even follow it." He stands no chance of losing that tag when a line like "the motherf*cking Democrats is acting like Republicans" is contained within the same verse. Plus, he always has and always will excel at depicting facets of interpersonal politics. As much as The Beautiful Struggle is likely to catch longtime fans off-guard and leave mainstream followers indifferent, Kweli's unexpected moves appear to have more to do with trying new things — and possibly thwarting preconceived notions — than desperation. Still, there's no denying that it misses a little more than it hits.

Talib Kweli fue uno de los raperos más exitosos con la crítica de su época, que se inició a fines de los 90 cuando rapeaba junto a Mos Def y DJ Hi-Tek, como integrante de Black Star. Después del profusamente elogiado álbum del grupo de 1998, Black Star, Kweli y Hi-Tek realizaron colaboraciones como dúo en Reflection Eternal (2000). Kweli continuó produciendo, comenzando con Quality (2002), y a pesar de no obtener grandes ventas, permaneció como un favorito de la crítica y fue admirado y respetado...
