He has been a frequent guest at dozens of colleges and Universities and has lectured on contemporary Spoken Word at the prestigious Graduate School of Education at UC Berkeley.

Excellent product, excellent shipping. Bought as a gift for a person who loves your work, buy I may need to purchase a copy for myself!

Indubitably Inevitable

As if...
I'm such a tremendous fan of Taalam's work and to have what I consider the 'best of the best' compiled in a convenient two disc set is simply a dream come true! These are the only two discs in my CD changer at the moment and trust me they're on HEAVY rotation! :-) I'm trying to put EVERYONE on to this compilation be/c his words can change lives!

Inescapable Prophetic Truth!
Undoubtedly, Taalam finds himself among a rare and very minute group of modern day prophets. Truly gifted, deeply spiritual.I am a clergyman that serves in a not-for-profit organization in Newark, NJ with 18-21year old homeless,abused, addicted, and gang related young people that society has attempted to throw away. Interestingly, although many of them are mentally and emotionally challenged, they connect with and respond to a lot of Taalam's work. For instance, in a group setting one day I played "Market 4 Ni$$az" to stimulate conversation about the current state of hip-hop. Immediately after hearing the piece one young man chimed in and said "yo that shit was crazy tight son - i'm feelin dude!" He went on to say "dude is pullin some covers back with all that truth but heads really don't want to hear that because they caught up in all that fake shit that they see in videos." I commended him for his insight, then went on to show the entire group how this young mans comment had vividly proved Taalam's point for writing the piece. Taalam keep doing what you were put here to do, your work is helping more people than you could ever begin to imagine! From one Jersey brother to another, represent!!!

Queen Yolanda

THE MARKET 4 CHANGE
This is my first CD by Taalam. I am hooked. The sista that has him better be treating him like GOLD! and the gift from GOD! Taalam you have to be real because not just anybody can role like the words that come off your tongue. I pray that one day you will pay VA a visit because I would be the first in line. My hat goes off to you my brother. Keep it flowing and God Bless

Market 4 Ni$$az
All your tracks on Market for Change I dig, But I chose this one because I can play it in my car, turn up the volume and drive down the hood and watch the Ni$$az fall out. I also love how you pay homage to women. One love.

Market 4 Change
This man's work is amazing! Once you start listening, you do not want to stop. Taalam leaves no stone unturned. His words pierce my heart, pierce my soul! If you are looking for the truth, look no further. Ladies, get your guys a copy! You will NOT be disappointed! Hear the messages, take them to heart. He is changing the planet one ear at a time... But don't just listen to the words, do something with the knowledge you gain!

Part of me wants to spell t--l-ms name like that all the time now and whats interesting about that is, I only began spelling g-ds name in that way after i first saw him do it.

Completely satisfied
Seldom does a product provide complete satisfaction, however, "The Market 4 Change" has done just that.
