I Can't Live Without This Kind Of Hip-Hop!

(5 out of 5 stars)
"Eminem,Dr.Dre,Snoop Dog-nothing personel but THIS is
how it's done.I like LL's stuff in general but "Radio" stands
alone as the early,primal Def Jam-era example of tough,minimalist
hip-hop.But a big change is that LL Cool J adds song structure
to the raps with "Dear Yvette" including backup vocals,ever
gloriously off key as they are.his debut 12" incher "I Need A Beat" is also here as are "You Can't Dance","Dangerous" and
"You'll Rock"-all beat heavy street jams worthy of Run DMC
beat box Bronx rap circa mid 1980's.The catchy "I Want You" isn't
listed on the back oof the CD but it's a definate highlites.LL's
clever boasts like "I've got more rhymes then Edgar Allen Poe"
and his declaration of "I Can't live without my radio!" make
this a heavy,boasting album worthy of this rapper's savvy."
