  1. I’m glad to hear he’s finally releasing this. I wonder, is 5 Bouroughs the explicit version, b/c that song was a classic back in ’99.

  4. Checked out the previews and the albums is gonna be SICK! awsome beats and killer lyrics,
    however i don’t understand why he’s got Cam’ron on it?
    i mean i dig his beats, but his lyrics are far from underground, kinda makes KRS look bad and makes cam’ron look good, i don’t wanna comment too much on 1st track as i don’t know what their connection is but can someone explain why this chump is on his album.

  8. The album is sooooooo tight. Best of KRS 1,esp New York,HIP HOP,and Beware.

    This is hip-hop @ its fullest. Hip-hop has meaning,its not rap there is a big difference. Unlike the Liwanyne(lil Wonton,Lil Won)and all the other garbage out there,that’s out there. Krs 1,Rakim,Nas,BDKane,Slick Rick,Common,Mos Def,Talib,Tribe/Quest,etc stand-up,and 2 the non-hip-hoppers; I say this

    Make us think!
    and not just blink,
    from ya ink.
    breathe life 2 the Masses,
    and save me from ya Zinc.
    of my chains,my rangs,
    sythesized voice changed,Cameo sounded,
    That’s Played out,
    ground it.
    A Millionon,dunce-dom,
    Voltron,powerrange sound.
    “Oh” Come,Come nowwwww. (Jamician Voice).
