Few artists can say that they wrote a hit song and even fewer can say that they created a bona fide anthem. Talib Kweli’s got both of those bases covered with ‘Get By,’ a motivational soundtrack to the lives of strugglers and strivers the world over.

Produced by a pre-Yeezus Kanye West, ‘Get By’ went from went from underground banger to radio hit and Kweli’s signature song. For this Off the Record performance, we get a live version that recreates the magic of Kanye’s Nina Simone sample flip, turning it into a lush, full-bodied backdrop for Kweli’s ode to everyday hardworking men and women who go hard despite circumstances.
