Ms. Hill, you got skills, that's a gift, it's real

from Talib Kweli – Ms. Hill Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

At a time where singer/rapper Ms. Lauryn Hill was going through emotional and mental struggles, Kweli starts off by giving her some encouraging words: that she’s talented…

This refers to her absence from the music industry (due to her disappointment of where it was going and how she felt she was being unfairly controlled by her own record label) during the mid-2000’s and took some time away from interviews, watching TV, and listening to music.
