This is one of the hardest hitting albums to come out in the past ten plus years. This album came out just at the wake of the shooting of Tupac and Biggie as a plea to ease the violence in hip-hop (as is expressed in the chorus of "Definition"). Mos Def and Talib Kweli are a part of the Native Tongues Posse, which host some of the greatest artists of hip-hop (Common, A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, and more).
After the continual escelation of the coastal rivalries and growing popularity of neutral groups like A Tribe Called Quest and the Roots, this album fully delivered not only a snowballing message but a mellow new vibe to the sound. "Thieves in the Night" not only examines society through Toni Morrison's eyes but stones out during a trend of party beats, which from there is being thoroughly dissected by Stones Throw and Ninja Tune artists (not to discredit their time creating-- Peanut Butter Wolf has been spinning and producing since 1989!) Regardless of who was doing what these two MCs (with the help of appearances by DJ Hi-tek, Common, and more) stood up and said they'd had enough-- and they were heard.
