2009’s Survival Skills is a cross-generational gathering of New York rap’s most faithful adherents, led by two of its icons: Brooklyn rap legend Buckshot and hip-hop’s original elder statesman, KRS-One. The album’s recipe is as simple as it is crucial: skillfully crafted verses about urban truth; somber but aggressive beats; no gimmicks. Amid the cast of guest stars, Buckshot plays the wily assassin, while KRS arrives on his tracks like a gust of thunderous wind. Even among more famous rappers, these two are the true stars of standout tracks like “Oh Really,” “Survival Skills,” and “The Way I Live,” which features the royal presence of Mary J. Blige.
Album Of The Year!
In a perfect world this album would be the number 1 selling album on the charts, but since we live in a bubble gum catchy hook kinda world it won't even touch the top 100...but please listen to these reviews and buy this album. It defines Hip Hop in it's truest form, concious rhymes, hard hitting beats, and the greatest emcee of the past, present, and future: KRS ONE -QuHeCTiC24
Saved By Legacy
The content of these songs saves this album. Most of the beats are generic at best, definitely not the sound that's defined these two legends. But you gotta give props to Kris and Buck for taking a stand against all the garbage that is called hip-hop today. The album cover is a horrible execution of an obvious metaphor.
Substance Trumps Style
I can go on and on about how modern day rap lacks substance. Unfortunately, it does. Enough about cars, jewelry, women, how you're thugs, and all these other things. Step your game up, rappers. Take KRS-One and Buckshot's example and put out quality music. Substance trumps style everytime.
