Me and Kweli close like Bethlehem and Nazareth
Mos Def and Talib Kweli are close friends and musical collaborators. Bethlehem and Nazareth are actually about 70 miles apart (which is not that far with modern transportation). However, many listeners will associate these cities with their biblical significances, specifically as the birthplace and childhood homes of Jesus, respectively. In both of these senses, they are closely linked.
