Talib comes back with another one minus the major label and politics surrounding. This album is much better than Beautiful whatever. Taking it back to the roots in a sense, Talib spits heat and rips it up for the most part on this album. Well worth a look.

Blacksmith movement son!!, October 30, 2008
By: Gfunk - See all my reviews

Talib has always been one of my favorite emcees, so I have all of his records. This one is kinda pricey, but access doesn't mention you get a bonus disc with four extra tracks on it (at least I did). Anyway, this album is notable because it is on Talib's Blacksmith record label. In my experience, Blacksmith mixtapes are always pretty bangin'. If you can find Blacksmith "The Movement" cop it, it is all Jean Grae, Strong Arm Steady and Talib assasinating. Some beats you've heard, some not. There is a S.A.S. version of that CMA song "Windows" that is SO savage on that ish. Anyway, likewise with this Talib mixtape, there is a song with the exact same sample as the Dilla produced "Hidding Place" which was my favorite track on one of the Little Brother albums (it is a softer beat but still pretty cool). Not all the tracks on Right About Now are top notch. But there is plenty of raw dope on here to satisfy, and it is more than worth it too hear Talib bust on the underground tip. He comes out so smooth for the first verse of track 1. Track 2 is ruthless (I love how Talib snaps out the chorus on this one), and there are a handful of other memorable joints on here like "Beast", or "Roll of me". There is even a track on here with MF DOOM which is a pretty unlikely team up in my mind. This is music Talib made for himself, so the fact that it's available is pretty cool. I'm telling you, keep watch for Blacksmith if you want to hear Talib and them keeping the underground alive.
