iTunes Review

Though hip-hop has changed and evolved since it blew up in the ‘80s, one thing remains constant: KRS-One is still here and still making records. The self-proclaimed Teacha is amongst the most revered and influential emcees ever. He continues to tour (his live show is still incredible) and release new material aimed squarely at wistful old-schoolers and the next generation of B-boys unimpressed by current trends. On The BDP Album, he reconnects with his brother Kenny Parker, who produces all but one of the 14 tracks. There are hard-knocking drums, well-chosen samples, and spacy keys to support the Blastmasta's bold wordplay. As with most KRS projects, the lyrics revolve around his legacy of 20-plus years, the sad state of the modern-day rap game, and bringing knowledge to the listeners. While it's not a classic on par with Criminal Minded, it's still a dope effort from an undeniable pioneer. Check out “Do It,” “Forever” (with Channel Live), “I Do This for You,” and the Armageddon-addressing “2012.”

Slow Burner - But Hell of an Album

This is a bit of a slow burner. When you first listen I thought this is OK, but doesn't stand up against previous releases, but on the 2nd or 3rd listen you remember the depth of KRS's lyrics and with the subtle beats of Kenny turned up loud you begin to realise that this album is brilliant in its consistency. For me there are no stand out tracks, just track after track of pure KRS, and when it comes to lyrical content - there are none better. Buy now.

KRS-One (born Kris Parker) was the leader of Boogie Down Productions, one of the most influential hardcore hip-hop outfits of the '80s. At the height of his career, roughly 1987-1990, KRS-One was known for his furiously political and socially conscious raps, which is the source of his nickname, "the Teacher." Around the time of 1990's Edutainment, BDP's audience began to slip as many fans thought his raps were becoming preachy. As a reaction, KRS-One began to re-establish his street credibility with...
