Kweller & Kweli

I'm not going to waste a lot of time with this, but when I listened to Talib Kweli's latest mixtape back in the winter, I came upon a very familiar hook... after a few seconds I realized it was Ben Kweller's "In Other Words" from his album Sha Sha... and I think it works really well. Ms. Hill is a song about how fine Lauryn Hill is or something. Think Tank brings up a good point too (post is HERE), I think that a crossover of this kind really hits more than one audience and lets Kweli tap into the hugely untapped indie demographic for rappers. Here are both the tracks... for comparison.
