    Product Details


    When it comes to top drawer lyricism and neck snapping beats, the names Pumpkinhead, Mr. Metaphor, and Block McCloud ring out like a shot. From their head turning appearances at Lyricist Lounge to their performances on the international circuit to their much loved singles and mixtapes, the three emcees have built an army of fans hungry for authentic rap music. Together as Brooklyn Academy, the trio represent a return to the original aesthetics of hard core hip-hop. Bored of Education, the group's full length debut, is the culmination of a career at the forefront of the lyric driven hip-hop movement. A collective of emcees who have been holding down the microphone for over a decade each, Brooklyn Ac approach their craft with a love of the fundamentals of rap music rarely seen in the age of million dollar ringtones. For the fans who have been following their career from the first drum hit, at long last, the wait is over.

Hope they redeem themselves on the sophmore album

    Comment: Been listning to BK Academy 4 years now & sad 2 say this is probly the worst piece of work I have ever heard 4rm them. Sounds like i'm listening to a Swiss beats production. Lacks the punch that sets them apart 4rm average emcees'. Block - 2 me has kinda compromised his style ( geeze we all know how dope u r). This album is more for bling bling cats on the streets. My advice - dnt buy this, rather bomp da old BK Ac.

    Comment: For years I've been a close follower of BK Ac. I've probably got more than 20 mixtapes/albums from all 3 members combined so I'm convinced that the talent is definitely there. Their official debut album was long overdue but came off uninspired like Gaul already previously mentioned. I know alot of heads have been watching them for years, patiently waiting for them to grow bigger and eventually break out and take place among the underground's finest. Their first attempt came up short, I hope the next time they step their game up and show the world what BK Ac is really about!

    Comment: Thought this shit was just ok. I agree with most of the comments on here cause this shit does sound rushed and overall less than mediocre. But goddamn Block! That Pepe cat really just fucked you up that shit had me laughin but he was speakin some realness not just on this group but on some general hip-hop shit. So to all these SOCALLED artists in the game: STEP YA MUTHAFUCKIN GAME UP!!!!

    Comment: You know how you can tell if an MC/rap group is really wack? Well, if they respond to the listener reviews on UGHH that would be a good indication. "I shouldnt even respond but..." Then dont respond ya fuckin bum. Why dont you take that time to write some hot shit, simple and plain. No need to get bent all outta shape cause that Tim dude wrote the truth about the album. He's right the songs are redundant mostly because you guys sound uninspired and lazy on the mic. The production doesn't help either. Ill Mind and Black Milk are dope as fuck but they usually give throwaway beats to people who either dont have a lot of paper or just aren't that fresh. I cant blame em, really. As far as the smashing groupies on tour shit, that says a lot about your maturity, aren't you in your mid 30's? You gotta be, you been in the game for a minute and you havent made any type of impact yet (not even a wave in a kiddie pool), that should tell you something. Anyway, I dont know who even goes to your shows but I doubt any fly chicks do, probably just young white boys that think "obscure" rap groups are cool, no matter how much they spit in the face of Hip-Hop culture.

    Comment: Sh-t is borderline wack to be quite honest. I like Pumpkinhead and have always been a fan of Mr. Metaphor, but Block McCloud sucks as a producer and emcee. This collab effort just doesn't work, also surprisingly weak production offering's from Marco Polo, Khrysis, & Illmind. It appears the people who contributed to this project lacked inspiration. This joint is forgettable.

    Comment: These guys are the shit!!! I'm lyin they are ass. I always thought pumpkinhead sucked because he looks retarded and his rhymes suck. I heard him on this Nervous Records compilation back in the day and vomited on my cousin. He punched me in the face but got more puke on his hand so I had the last laugh. Today I saw that this bullshit was coming out so it reminded me of that. Tonight I'm going over to my cousin's house and I'm going to piss a little in his orange juice for punching me in the face.

    Comment: Hey Block, PH and Fresh Jones in here ?! Respect to y'all ! Well, to the fans like me (who can't believe how an official album from BK Ac never got out before !)... there are a bunch of already known tracks, through myspaces, through Marco Polo's album, through Ill Bill's CD (by the way these two last tracks are great). Anyway I'm glad an album finally drops, BK Ac deserves a lot of credit and are incredibly underrated. "The Academy Awards" CD is still a masterpiece to this day. I also loved PH's "Orange Moon". And Block's "Spittin Image" was very surprising at first... and after a few listens that shit was on repeat non-stop ! Same goes for The Lost Soulz group ! (what's up with that group BTW ?). How come there isn't more production by Block on the new album ? Peace and Love to the very creative BK Ac !!
