Mos Def's verse is flawless.
I could probably listen to this all day every day.
Breathe in ... Breathe out
Talib has flow.
This still gives me chills
too bad common almost ruined it
It's not improbable that this might be the best thing any emcee has ever written.

One of the best songs there is..especially on the winter..makes you think and feel so conscious =)

Ugh so brilliant.
