3. Like Bob Dylan’s, Talib Kweli’s music - Correct - Music is compared to music
4. As with Bob Dylan, Talib Kwelil’s music - Incorrect - Awkward + Comparison error

This is a classic comparison question.
A. Like Bob Dylan, the music of Talib Kweli - compares Bob Dylan the person to music which is not correct
B. Like Bob Dylan, Talib Kweli’s music - same as B
C. Like Bob Dylan’s, Talib Kweli’s music - yes, this compares Bob Dylan's music to that of Talib Kweli's music. Correct
D. As with Bob Dylan, Talib Kwelil’s music - same as A & B
E. As is Bob Dylan’s, the music of Talib Kweli - Awkward and not as good as C

Thus the answer is C.
