Hip Hop Lives

KRS-One and Marley Marl [2007] Hip Hop Lives

This is a historical album in the sense that 20 years ago, KRS and Marl were once bitter rivals involved in the legendary Bridge Wars and today, while most of Hip-Hop cats are beefing, this two legends joined forces, showing unity, and that’s a great thing for Hip-Hop.

I like the album, better then KRS' last albums combined.

I find the title track to stand out, along with kill a rapper (both tracks were released some time ago as well) and I'm really liking Rising To The Top (love the beat, heard it somewhere before, but I don't know where :()

I agree, I really like those tracks, along with All School

And I've also heard that sample before, but can't remember where

I'm impressed all the years Kris has been preaching hip hop he has finally produced an album living up to the hype. I love KRS-! I ahve all his albums and has followed his career throughout up until now I was praying this album was worth all the times I have defended him against the younger generation that says he's wack. I like the production he flows pretty good with most of the tracks i found about 9 tracks that I liked and another 4 that I can't wait to play again. The album is loaded and I haven't heard one like it for a while!! I will definetly cop the album!! Thanks!!

Hard to say, but it's pretty good. Much beter then expected from someone who cheered on 9/11!

Marley's beats are to dated sadly enough.

You know that 's not fair, his personal opinion about an incident is his alone at least he had guts to say what I'm sure some millions of others felt as well.But back to the music What's dated about the music it matches the artist and the roots and core of what he is about. What do you expect KRS 1 to get blinged up and talk about how many o's he's slanged, how many cars he has and you get my point? I guess Marly should make some butt shaking music hgh!! I respect your opinion my man but I care to differ and at the end of the day that's all it is! These two artist are legendary they have truly stood the test of time. They have put together a wonderful album, to me something worth hearing!!

Yohan said...

I personally think you're overreacting, oldskool4real. I find the album to be pretty decent, but it's nowhere near legendary. It's not wack, not at all, but there are some pretty weak tracks on HHL as well.

I like the beats, especially the beats of the 'major' tracks, like Hip Hop Lives, Rising To The Top and Kill A Rapper.

Indeed, it's worth hearing, but I'm affraid we'll forget this album pretty soon, which is never a good sign.

the sample used on Rising to the top was also used on Apathy - The Game f. Vinnie Paz (props to dreftsnoop of RB board)

Yohan said...

Alright, thanks for finding that out! Now I'm lookin' if I have that track lying around somewhere!

Olskool4real said...

I never said this album was legendary I said the artist themselves were legendary, I was responding to the sarcasm utilitzed by anonymous and the comment about Marly being outdated. yeah this may be forgotten by some headz cause let's face it,if it aint about shaking ass, making money, or popping caps it don't appeal.A true KRS and Marly fan will appreciate what just took place.Yohan your first comments simplified this enough the album is better than the last few.As for overreacting the hip hop I grew up in from 79 on up I hold dearly, I have no intent on being overactive but making my points clear as everyone else so when I hear negative comments about artist that have given so much to the music, it's on!!LOL

Yohan said...

You're totally right. I too really appreciate it, but compared to everything that came out in the Golden Years, this is reduced to 'just avarage' IMO.

Maybe that's my problem, I still expect everything to sound like it did 15 years ago.

Olskool4real said...

I agree 100 yohan Jazzy Jeff for instance has a nice album out but since I remember this guy like yesterday from the outside jams and parties and stuff that I wanna hear him rip the cut on everything so I become heavy critical of his material. There are others that you'll hear me comment on from time to time, that I hold to their earlier material. I haven't heard one album from any old schooler today that sounds like yesterday.They have matured enough to rattle most of us old schoolers looking for that old hip hop, then it doesn't rock for the new schooler.I listened again today and I do agree that we won't be talking about this very long.Yohan my man it's safe to say it's a nice album so maybe I did over react Ha! Ha! Ha! great for conversation though!!!

Yea indeed, it's always fun to argue with likeminded people!
