CD Reviews

Godfathers of hip-hop
04/20/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Anyone who thinks they know about hip-hop, but doesn't know about the Last Poets needs to re-think their devotion. Unfortunately, too many kids my age (18) and younger don't know who these men are. They are the original hip-hoppers, preaching a message of retribution and black power. Most importantly, they are both a literal and metaphorical revolution. They revolutionized music while representing still a revolution of the mind, and a transfer of power from the capitalist pigs to the common man, just like Ho Chi Minh tried to do."
