Presumably tired of high-profile feuds with the likes of hip-hop superstar Nelly and public excoriation of the rap scene in general, the legendary KRS-One gets back to business on KRISTYLES. When you've been around for as long as this former Boogie Down Productions member, you're able to examine the world from an effective vantage point, and that's just what KRS-One does here. Atop visceral but never over-elaborate backing, the hip-hop pioneer combines trenchant philosophical insights with street-real scenarios on tracks that both inform and inspire.
