1. R.A. The Rugged Man ft. Talib Kweli —"Learn Truth" (AUDIO).


    R.A. The Rugged Man and Talib Kweli . Aside from their tracks appearing on the same Rawkus era compilation albums like Soundbombing I & II , these two rap cats had never linked up on wax before, and it's not hard to see why. Known for vastly diff'rent lyrical content (R.A. renowned for raw, blood-and-guts shock; Talib noted for socially conscious work), the pairing, at first glance, seems like Charles Manson and MLK becoming BFFs. Yet, as the Mr. Green -produced "Learn Truth" clearly shows, two top-notch MC's can always find ways to mesh together well. As the song title suggests, R.A., who can spit some thought-provoking shit , and Talib do the knowledge and compel you to listen.

    "... the trust is gone from the Neocons to Barack Obam / America eats its young, from Casey Anthony to the Octomom..." —Talib Kweli

      People forget that R.A. the Rugged Man did a track with J-Live. It's not his first time at that rodeo.

      Fucking incredible. One of the dopest tracks I've heard in a long time.

      R.A. has the best breathe control I've heard since Pun. He seems to never ever breathe when he rhymes. Even G. Rap and Sean P. breathe once in a while, wow.
