I want these days back again, NOW
punkviper | Pittsburgh, PA USA | 12/30/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Way back in the days when rap was inventive and meant something, there was Kool Moe Dee. Blowing the roof off of nearly every other rapper around. Always taking the high ground, never stooping to gangsta posturing or pretty-boy posing, he came at you with an amazing ability to rhyme and poignant subjects that make today's rap look just plain silly. It's a shame rap had to be co-opted by tough-guy-wannabes and pointless airheads, because Moe Dee could still be topping the charts today. A forgotten legend."

"Have to chime in and say that this truly is a lost classic. Knowledge is King came out right as the Old School was transitioning into the powerful (yet fatally flawed) Gangsta Rap era. It is definately not as playful as older rap albums, but KMD comes across strong and hard without the tired gimmicks (guns, b*tches, etc.) that defined his followers. On top of decent beats, he's as lyrically gifted as the D.O.C. If you like this era but aren't familiar with this one, buy it and you won't be disappointed."
