Radio and hip hop media, as a whole, was dominated by 2 Chainz and Rick Ross in 2012; but conscious hip hop also had a good year. In 2012, both Lupe Fiasco and Saigon released albums. While conscious hip hop dominated, its longtime star, Talib Kweli played his role in the background.
Indeed a good year for socially conscious lyrics, Talib Kweli is planning on making 2013 a bigger year for the hip hop genre. With Mos Def now being known as Yasiin Bey, fans are looking forward to a reunion. Talib Kweli has yet to release any new music, but he has been making his media rounds.
