NOTE To Users: Technically this is not an artist and the Rawkus release "Hip Hop For Respect" should be entered as "Various". However due to the large number of artists that appear, and in order to clean up the sloppy and confusing look of the page, the artist "Hip-Hop For Respect" was created. Its only members are Mos Def and Talib Kweli, the organizers of the project. For the sake of less confusion, please do not add all of the other MC's that appear above to this group.
