    Product Details

    Summary

    Legendary Juice Crew members Craig G & Marley Marl team up once again to release Operation Take Back Hip-Hip. On the heels of Marley Marl's successful album Hip-Hop Lives from 2007 with KRS-One and the announcement of a major motion picture entitled The Vapors based on the Juice Crew's story, a full fledged renaissance is under way. The albums instantly catchy single "Made The Change" (also available from Traffic on June 17th) has already been lighting radio waves on fire, while "The Day The Music Died" shows why Craig G is still one of the most respected lyricists in the game and why he was chosen to write key portions of Eminem's "8 Mile" and 50 Cent's "Get Rich Or Die Trying" movies. Operation Take Back Hip-Hip features a top notch lineup of guest emcees that includes KRS-One, Cormega, Rakaa of Dilated Peoples and Sadat X. Craig G and Marley Marl first worked together way back in 1985 with the release of the two classic 12" singles "Shout" and "Transformer". In 1988, their undeniable chemistry was cemented with their legendary effort entitled "Droppin' Science", from the Marley Marl In Control album. This led to them working together on Craig G's major label solo albums at the turn of the decade. Today, the two effortlessly prove the magic is still there.

    Comment: Hey Abe Realz you sound like one of those emo/anternative rap fans. Go cry over some aesop rock or cage. You cry babies are what keeps prozac in business.

    Comment: "Re: Last song on the album". In the below comment I said the last song was a timeless track. I meant track 17. The hidden joint is dope as well but isn't listed on the back of the CD. Buy this instant classic now!

    Comment: If you take tracks 2,4,5,6,9,11,14,15 and make a disk you could put it up against anyone old or new, commercial or independent. What I hear from this album is how the mainstream artist are acting stupid and making the Hip Hop game look stupid in return. The last song on this album is a timeless track. the only reason I didn't include it on that list above is because I think only the ones that can comprehend that track for what it is are the ones that understand that deep of metaphor and thought processes. The songs I Listed above are for a Craig G fan to show the person that is trying to say their favorite mc is the best due to album sales or how many times they shot someone, and you know better. Peace and Blessings!

    Comment: Craig G and this album is what Hip Hop is supposed to sound like. All you lil wayne fans are dumb as he looks. I guess it's just another case of the blind leading the blind in main stream pop rap.

    Comment: I can't believe no one has written a review about this... This is exactly what the problem is today. Kids these days don't know who the real pioneers are. They don't know that this is how hip hop used to sound... It really does make me sad... Yo, track 6 is crazy!
