Kill the Rhythms (Like a Homicide) Review by Garth Cartwright
Considering the close brush with prison Just-Ice encountered when he was briefly held by Washington D.C. police regarding a homicide in 1987, you might be forgiven for thinking that he would possess some insight into murder and its repercussions. Uh-uh. Here he appears intent on showing how he can still rap harder, faster, and nastier than the multi-platinum gangstas who were still in short pants when he first grabbed a mic, but you get the feeling he's straining to impress rather than leading by example. Again, the record company's inability to match Just-Ice with a producer who can bring his voice and personality forward means listening to this album quickly becomes hard work. His old pal KRS-One drops in to trade some rhymes, but, compared to their efforts on Kool and Deadly, they both sound uninspired.
