Right About Now: The Official Sucka Free Mix CD

Right About Now: The Official Sucka Free Mix CD or simply Right About Now was released by Talib Kweli in November 2005 and is generally considered a mixtape. However, some people regard this release as an official album because of its availability through commercial sites and its release of two singles. It also lacks the DJ overlays often accompanied by mixtapes which makes this CD read more like an official album. This CD is notable because, although a low-key release, it features upcoming members of Kweli's record label, Blacksmith Music. Also, the appearance of Mos Def on the track Supreme Supreme is another key point of the album, since Talib Kweli and Mos Def haven't rapped together on a track since Kweli's Quality album in 2002. There is some controversy about the song "Ms. Hill", (a dedication song to artist Lauryn Hill) which features an uncredited and illegal sample of a Ben Kweller song. There was also a minor legal issue with the track "Where You Gonna Run" which sounded very similar to Little Brother's "Hiding Place".
