Talib Kweli recently appeared on Arsenio and talked about some very interesting things that people may not understand about hip hop and the community that produces the artists. There are a lot of people that are so quick to talk about the negatives in hip hop music and its artists without truly understanding the environment for which these artists are birthed into and the circumstances that surround them-which is what they rap about.

What Talib had to say while talking to Arsenio about today's rap artists makes perfect sense and allows one to take a deeper look into the world of hip hop.
