The Sneak Attackby KRS-One
When Sublime's Bradley Nowell sang about how he wanted to be more like KRS-One on Sublime's 1992 classic "40 Oz. of Freedom," he was speaking for a nation of American youth -- kids who have admired the rap legend's confrontational flow since he and his South Bronx rap crew, Boogie Down Productions, bum-rushed the New York rap scene in 1986. On his first solo album since 1997's I Got Next, the Blastmaster makes a triumphant return to the spotlight with his finest work since BDP's 1992 swan song, Sex and Violence. Flanked by thumping, dancehall-inspired beats and some of his dopest lyrics in years, The Sneak Attack finds KRS assuming the role of hip-hop's elder statesman, fearlessly chastising younger MCs who've tarnished the image of his craft with glitz, greed, and gluttony. "Who was the first to say stop the violence and teach that real bad boys move in silence?" he reminds fans on "Attendance." This latest gospel according to KRS-One is an uncompromising testament to progressive hip-hop -- and to Kris Parker's enduring presence as a living musical legend. Ron Hart

I like KRS and I have heard some mixed reviews about this particular album, but I liked it a lot. Some cuts are are not my particulate favorite because I don't feel the beats but the lyrics are still dope on every song. On a few cuts there are some of the sickest lines-lyrics I have ever heard on any rap cd ever! This CD is on the inspirational tip. I feel uplifted after hearing it. Pick it up for sure!!!!!
This album is one of the best hip hop albums I have ever heard. I never listened to KRS 1 before I got this CD. I can't stop listening to it. KRS 1 is a hip hop ledgend!
