The article labels Public Enemy’s Chuck D as “the ultimate politically and socially conscious emcee.”

Talib Kweli, the article says, is known for his introspective rhymes. “It’s his astute observation of the human condition on tracks like ‘Respiration’ and ‘Get By’ that truly sets him apart from other artists,” the article says.
