Summary: Disappointing Dispersion
Comment: Without question KRS-ONE is recognized as and well deserves the title of one of hip hop's pioneers. Not only has The Teacher been around since day zero before hip hop became rap and rap became pop but he is an innovator, a man far beyond his realm. KRS-ONE has successfully merged prophetic poetry with political and social awareness while so few artists in any music genre have managed to accomplish this. After a brief hiatus KRS-ONE released a self-titled album that proved his superior skill without compromise. So it amazes me that The Teacher would water down his technique to produce this generic wordplay with a beat and flow that is on the border between underground and commercial acceptance. In other words I can see FunkMaster Flex and the Hot 97 team attempting to give it air play in a benign attempt to realize the essential roots of true hip hop. I expect this from rappers trying to withstand the challenges of longevity in an industry that is constantly evolving, and I use that word loosely. I can't knock any artist for doing what they need to do if music is their meal ticket. Of course there are many emcees who understand hip hop as an art form and are not willing to sacrafice their passion and soul to beome marketing puppets. My hat tips to these men and women. These are emcees who will not and cannot forget what Hip-hop is and will always be in essence: it is a culture defined by graf, b-boys/girls, clothing, slang, music and a common love for all these things. So Teacher, come back to class and quench our thirsts for knowledge and unfiltered music once again.

Comment: I can't stand hooks like this, just shameless self-promotion. But what rapper isn't guilty of that? This track isn't as tight as the first one. The beat is okay, however, definitely better then half the sh*t that comes out these days. So support the legend and cop this 12". If this track doesn't convince you then peep "Fucked."

Summary: Bottom Line: He Is Hip Hop
Comment: What would Hip-hop be without KRS? 18 years in the game and he still can rock with a up and coming producer like Soul Supreme. Nice chemistry between the two.
