As we know, the Blastmasta, the Teacha, KRS-ONE is the personification of Hip-Hop. So much so he is the representation of all genres of Hip-Hop. This includes, so-called “gangsta rap” , “battle rap” and “conscious rap”. Entering his fifth decade of MC mastery, he remains hungry with this new release called IMAMCRU12. This album is raw! As always, his bars are firm yet swift. The beats are snappy and chunky, simple, but not in a bad way. This is the sort of album you can listen to all the way from track one through 14. Im proud to have witnessed his reign since 1987 through today. Long live Boogie Down Productions!
