This review is from: So...How's Your Girl (Audio CD)
This lp has everything that is lacking in contemporary hip hop. Hip hop has it's roots in eclecticism:-see Bambaata's early mixing and matching. Flash's contrasting of heavy funk and rock music. Despite this much modern rap is perpetuating the same dull cliches, being a pimp, playa, slanging rocks etc privelleged over creativity.
It is no accident that Prince Paul, the man who produced the ground breaking "3 ft high and rising" is behind this project. The only draw-back is the rather weak joke that is used as a premise for the album.
