Riff: Talib Kweli – “It Only Gets Better”

May 6, 2013

Get the troops hit the roof, spit it true spit it great/Practicing my gratitude life is so beautiful/Working on attitude adjustment cause it only gets better

from It Only Gets Better lyrics by Talib Kweli

Talib finally has shaken himself free of his arrested development – all those years wasted on trying to go mainstream. He’s in a good place creatively and this is his coming out party. Only time now will determine whether or not he learns from this project and stays true to what works; [LISTEN].
