I'm a big fan of KRS, but was really disappointed by this book.

The part on numerology in particular killed it for me.

Mic check 1,2 1,2!

KRS likes to talk a lot.

It annoys me that Cornell West tags on an introduction in the front of the book. For what it is (more or less a written record of an art form that's steeped in oral tradition), I give it 4 stars. I think a CD comes with it.

Best book for revolutionaries that graces our language. There is not a single person on this planet that should not read this.
