Album Review

Subtitled "Justicizms," this album boasts one of the ugliest covers ever — a close up of Just-Ice's snarling gold dental work — and the sounds included are equally harsh. Producer KRS-One does not try and emulate Kurtis Mantronic's high-tech polyrhythms and samples, instead he strips the sound right back and keeps things very raw: at times there's little more here than Just-Ice's gruff vocals and the sound of a wheezing drum machine. Some old school fans rate this as the best album by the artist simply because it is so remorseless and raw. Perhaps the trick for newcomers is to check this album first and, if it interests you, then go to Back to the Old School for desert. Fans of KRS-One will want to own the record simply to hear him and Just-Ice trading rhymes on "Moshitup." The standout track is "Going Way Back," where Just-Ice rasps one of the first hip-hop history lessons and dares you to disagree that Brooklyn is where it all began. Ruff stuff.

iTunes does it AGAIN!!!

This is a must for the Old School Hip-Hop fan. Its a classic not many people knew or know about. Just-Ice has the flow and delivery that brought hip hop to life. KOOL AND DEADLY is the perfect title to this album.

this stuff is off the hook, if your looking for some smackin old beats this is the stuff i recommend you buy some of this

On the most realist tip!

There is no doubt that Just Ice and KRS - One throw down the gaunlet with this album setting the highest standard for real Hip Hop. This is it!

Long before the west coast tried to get "hard" with their gangsta rap the east coast had it allll going on. Even brother Ice T was schooled on this stuff and helped take the authentic feel of real hip hop to the west. This is by far THE best true Hip Hop album one could have in there collection. Let the masters take ya back.

A former bouncer at punk clubs, Joseph Williams, Jr. was the first of the New York rappers to embrace gangsta rap, and when he burst out of Ft. Greene, Brooklyn as Just-Ice, he gained instant notoriety. Muscle-bound, tattooed, aggressive -- he resembled Mike Tyson in more than just looks -- and with a mouthful of gold teeth, he certainly stood out. His debut album Back to the Old School proved he was more than just a pretty face. It came out on the independent New York label Sleeping Bag, and certainly...
