Let the Hustlers Play Review by Mtume Salaam
By 1988, hip-hop was changing, becoming increasingly politicized and topical. Let the Hustler's Play found Steady B struggling to keep up with the changes. With his delivery sounding, at times, strained and affected, Steady attempted to harden his style. Producer Lawrence Goodman again did an able job with the backing tracks, but only a few of these songs are memorable. Guest producer KRS One contributed three tracks and occasional vocal asides. A later KRS remix of a 12-inch single release landed Steady B on national video channels, but despite this exposure, Steady B's brand of good-natured hip-hop was fading out of vogue.
