iTunes Review

Grand Puba was such an integral part of Brand Nubian’s debut that there was some question as to what would become of the group when he exited in 1991. Rather than cower from the hole Puba left in the trio, Sadat X and Lord Jamar assumed full control of their vision, and their redoubled determination is immediately felt on In God We Trust. This is a leaner, meaner and in many ways superior album to its predecessor. Sadat and Jamar’s commitment to militant Afrocentrism gives In God We Trust a limitless fuel, and the flames in this record fly high. The album opens with a Muslim call to prayer — a solemn, audacious symbol of the group’s priorities. The rainbow colors of All for One are here incinerated by the gangster theology of “Pass the Gat,” “Black and Blue,” and “Punks Jump Up to Get Beat Down”— the last of which remains one of the hip-hop’s great riot-starters. Even when they are in the more laid-back mode of “Steal Ya ‘Ho,” “The Travel Jam” and “Love Me Or Leave Me Alone,” the lean, two-man chemistry between Sadat and Jamar keeps the music crackling like grease in a pan.

Customer Reviews

Brand Nubian and this white guy (me)....

this is a great album, and considering Grand Puba wasn't on board says a lot about what Sadat X and Lord J could do on their own. Great rhymes great beats and a great education...I'm a white guy, and Br.Nu. was one of those hip hop groups which opened me up to a world that was right in my backyard, but I'd never learn about in my regular history class. Just love that great era of hip hop, big shout to the east coast!

Biography

Formed: 1989 in New Rochelle, NY

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

The Five Percent Nation of Islam was a popular inspiration for numerous thinking-man's rap groups during the early '90s, and Brand Nubian was arguably the finest of the more militant crop. Although they were strongly related to the Native Tongues posse in style and sound, they weren't technically members, and were less reserved about spotlighting their politics and religion. Their outspokenness led to controversy, on an even larger scale than similarly minded groups like the X-Clan or Poor Righteous...
