5.0 out of 5 stars KRS-ONE is one of the greats and this is his BEST album., 20 Aug 2002

This review is from: Return Of The Boom Bap (Audio CD)
This classic album opens with a cool intro produced by the one and only DJ Premier. Then one of the best albums in hip-hop ever really kicks off. Outta Here is produced by Primo again and is excellent. The album also contains some other great tracks Black Cop, Mortal Thought, the amusing I Can't Wake Up, Sound Of Da Police and P Is Still Free.
The album is very well produced, leaning towards a very jazzy feel. Lyrically KRS is in outstanding form, proving why he is well respected by anyone who likes REAL hip-hop and not just the junk that tends to make the charts. Made in 1993 this is still relevant and will remain so FOREVER

5.0 out of 5 stars "Return of the hardcore beats and real rap", 4 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Return Of The Boom Bap (Audio CD)
This is the first solo KRS-One album, as the Blastmaster released LPs as a member of the group Boogie Down Productions between the years 1987-1992. What a great release this turned out to be!

Return of the Boom Bap is a hardcore album with bass-heavy beats and top-quality production (DJ Premier worked a lot on this!) and brilliant lyrical content by KRS. The theme isn't too dissimilar to KRS' previous release (when he was with BDP), 'Sex and Violence'. It provides a social commentary with apt storytelling on tracks like 'Uh Oh' and 'P is Still Free', the latter of these tracks being a continuation from the 'Remix for P is Free' track which was on the BDP debut, 'Criminal Minded'.

Overall, fantastic album, and one of KRS-One's greatest releases to date in my opinion. A must-have for any hip-hop collector or fan of the old school!

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS IS REAL HIP-HOP!!!!!!, 4 Sep 2003

This review is from: Return Of The Boom Bap (Audio CD)
This is it ladies and gentlemen this is what hip-hop is all about! Krs one is without doubt Hip-Hops voice of awareness of the plight of black americans he feels very strongly about the lack of equality towards the black man in america and uses his lyrics to highlight this whilst also trying to highlight ways for people to get out of the trouble. Krs one isnt so much a rapper hes an educator, a teacher of black history.
Now i got the politics out of the way we can get to the music and this album has a raw angery sound that most artists try and fail to replicate, no where is this more evident than from sound of da tha police which is a hip-hop anthem and the most reconigsable tune that KRS has released (that and step into a world) and needs no explanation.
I have touched on the fact that KRS is a teacher using rap for his lecture and to listen to Black cop this is in evidence, KRS takes this track by comparing the simularities between cops and overseers (black men promoted from the plantations to look over the other slaves) and compared that even though these two positions are spaced a hundred and fifty years apart their roles are very simular.
Brown skin woman is about teaching black women to respect themselves and to try and tell black men to respect them more. Mad crew is just a dope beat with a catchy base line with an even better chorus line "i got the mad mad crew upon the top" which is repeated in a slow down tempo voice and is very much representative to KRS's style.
On a lighter note there is I can't wake up which is about KRS dreaming hes a blunt and that top rappers and other noteable people are smoking him including bill clinton " the joint passes on to bill clinton, he says he will smoke but not inhale..." great line and is a strange but amusing track to find on an otherwise very serious album.
If you like your rap or are just getting into your hip-hop check this out its what Hip Hop is all about.
