With razor-sharp lyrics and a delivery that's at once laidback and powerful, Talib Kweli's a hell of a hiphop artist in his own right, even if he's most famous for his collaborations (Mos Def, Hi-Tek, Madlib, some guy named Kanye). Tonight he's in Portland, no doubt doing a few tracks off of his latest solo album, Gutter Rainbows. ERIK HENRIKSEN
