Perhaps Talib's best known song is "Get By." The overwhelmingly positive message is a fairly stark contrast from what we're used to seeing in mainstream rap, and it is certainly welcomed.
"This morning, I woke up
Feeling brand new, I jumped up
Feeling my highs and my lows
In my soul and my goals
Just to stop smoking and stop drinking
I've been thinking, I've got my reasons
Just to get by, just to get by
Just to get by, just to get by"
