(First Star taken off) because the sister cannot rap lol.. She either too angry or too eager to display any real talent... I am a HUGE fan of sister souljah as a person, as a political and activist figure representing our People... but I had to pop this CD out, I felt like she was screamin at me... Just yellin and angry (obviously)... But, I will simply hold on to it as a collectible out of respect and admiration for this woman of Power and Dignity. Some of the lyrics were a lil extra hateful, but you know... to each his own... I prefer to hear More about Resolutions than Problems.. but We can't address one without the other.. (Second Star taken off for that) This album didn't have enough of a balance for me, too much blame, not enough positive reinforcement of how we're going to overcome some of these obsticles Anyway.. I'm a proud black woman so I can do is respect the sister for her opinions. No regrets with this purchase.

This project by Sister Souljah is one of my favorite hip hop projects from the decade of the 90's. Yeah, yeah, I know she doesn't flow with the fluidity of an MC Lyte, or Queen Latifah, I don't really care that much about her lack of MC'ing skills, but it's her delivery an what she says in her lyrics that always drew me to her. Her voice is so powerful, I really dig that about her, full of confidence, and surety, and the content is just as appealing, she's saying things that people of color are still dealing with, and losing the battle for, nearly two decades later, very relevant lyrics indeed. I listen to this project still today, pretty regularly, it gives me strength to deal with the evil forces that want to destroy you mentally as a person of color, they want to strip you of your dignity, integrity, and self respect, things that I won't allow to be taken, but to also have another voice, like her's that thinks along the same line of thought, is more than reassuring as to deal with living in the "belly of the beast", here in "Amerikkka". If you haven't got this project already, and you're a person of color with the highest respect for yourself, an the outcome of your people, you should buy this project, you will be pleasantly surprised in how good it really is, far better than the majority of the mainstream, whacked out "hip pop" "crap hop" garbage of today, that is supposed to represent people of color, which is plain an simple, a disgrace to "real", genuine hip hop, in its truest essence...

Searched high and low for this in a digital format, I still have it on tape and tape players to play it on (I know it's a dinosaur).

Sister Souljah was one of the people who kept the fire burning in Me for Black consciousnesses in the early 1990's. I remember when the album first launched and after a few weeks you could not find it in record stores. I copied it on tape from a friend who had it.

Souljah's album was reviewed as being extreme Pro Black drivel Whites and Black People who worship Whites. The reason for her album doing so poorly in sales, is because she spoke the truth about life for Black People dealing with the White Power structure. That does not make lots of money for the White Power infrastructure of course. It was deliberately removed from stores or not ordered for resale. To wake Black Men and Women up it can be costly (family/time/life). Yet at the same time West Coast Gangster Rap/Hip Hop with lyrics of destruction and degradation of Black People flourished $ub$tantially, the money poured in. Most of the people who liked W. C. Rap was okay with that, I know why now. I liked/loved some of the West Coast Rappers and music - Snoop Dog, Warren G., Ice Cube, Ice T, Ren, etc. For me, I found a way in my mind to balance out the Conscious Rappers like Public Enemy, Rakim, Brand Nubian, etc., and W. C. Gangster Rappers and those in between. What Sister Souljah said back then applies to back then and nowadays.

Thank You Sister Souljah for your continued and Valiant work in the consciousness work you do.

If you take this as a spoken word album, its actually pretty complete. The production, presumably by the bomb squad, and the two excellent guest features make up for her lack of rapping skill. The only songs where she actually raps are the two singles and the songs with features. The majority of this album is spoken word.

If you value the message (the state of america- the problem, and how to survive as the person of color- the solution), you will most likely be satisfied by this album. Yes, she does scream, but thats because she is obviously passionate.

I find myself listening to the songs with features the most, as they as the most radio friendly.
Bottom line: Don't take the single review for this album as the end all be all. That review focuses solely on her rapping skill and nothing else. I only rated it 4 stars because it seemed more like an EP, than an album.
