July 5, 2007

Today marks the beginning of KRS One appreciation month. Why ? Just because. And if I believed the stats of this blog, a lot of people google his name and end up here, so I guess he’s more popular than what the last ten years of his career would make you think.

Livin Proof review, The Source (1995)

June 25, 2007

You know you suck when the guy who review your album can’t find one decent line in your rhymes and can only quote an interlude ! You gotta appreciate how the writer tries hard not to make fun of their lyrics. Lyrical enthusiast will surely appreciate the demo version of Supa Star, with different lyrics ! Have fun.
