Arguably the greatest album in the history of hip hop.

Jan 09, 2011
  • zephal rated this: 5 stars out of 5.

this being KRS' second album with the short-lived bdp crew, it is essential listening for anyone who likes hardcore hip hop, it mixes the funky beats of the late eighties with hard hitting lyricism creating one of bdps' best albums
