FUSE TV - On Spotify: Listen to Talib Kweli's Top 100 Hip Hop Songs

Talib Kweli's hip hop bona fides are unimpeachable. As one-half of Black Star with Yasiin Bey, the duo's 1999 debut Mos Def & Talib Kweli are Black Star remains a landmark rap album, while the Brooklyn native has released a string of critically acclaimed albums since 2002.

The rapper recently shared his 100 (or so) greatest hip hop songs of all time with Rolling Stone, which we of course debated, analyzed and scrutinized like the good music nerds we are before saying, "We should just make a Spotify playlist and let the people decide!" And here we are. Check out Kweli's choices below and let the debates begin.
