the KRS/Marley Album? Bananas!

I can't write a review about the new KRS-One and Marley Marl collaboration, "Hip-Hop Lives," because I can't simply do it justice.

I will say this: yes, KRS and Marley come off a bit heavy handed and didactic and preachy, but in exchange for that, we get KRS in top form, Marley's killer beats, and we're even treated to guest scratching and production from DJ Premier. I realize that the record is somewhat of an answer to Nas' "Hip-Hop is Dead," and features a lot of reminiscing from two rap stalwarts, but damn it's good, AND on top of that, a KRS-One album produced by Marley Marl? Bananas!!!!!!
