Much can also be said for his funky lyrics and wit.

Anyway, if you want a good piece of hip-hop history, this is a good CD to get.

Kool Moe Dee was/is one of the most intelligent rappers of any generation.

Someone below me needs to stop riding LL's jock like a school girl. These reviews are for Kool Moe Dee, not the LL fan club. But since you brought him up, I will say one thing. Kool Moe Dee is the one who stepped out of the rap game with dignity. LL these days is nothing less of a wack, sold out, bottom feeder who would probably stoop to anything to stay relevent and extend his career another few years. In comparison, Kool Moe Dee never wavered from his priniciples. And despite the hype machine surrounding Mr. Lady's Lover Cool James, I always thought KMD was better anyways. In fact, if you think "Mama Said Knock You Out" is better than "I Go To Work," you need to be slapped. The fraud-show should've been over a long time ago. Kool Moe didn't lose the battle. If they ever actually battled, LL would've gotten served hard. Add onto of that, Kool Moe is a top 5 GOAT MC, LL is not.

Back on topic, I don't own this CD, but I own all the albums the songs came off of. They are all classic material. Great, oldschool jams uncontaminated by blood-sucking A&Rs and silly, bandwagon trends. My favorite thing though has always been Kool Moe Dee's excelent delivery. I can't really think of anyone who flows thier voice with that amount of clarity, percision, and confidence. He never sacrificed this when he was spit-firing his rhymes at blinding speed or flowing more slowly. His MCing still stands out today among so many of the supposed premier MCs that came afterwards who mumbled their flows half-hazardly. Much can also be said for his funky lyrics and wit. This is hip hop that will stand the test of time. When people go back and really study the history of hip hop, he will have a sizeable entry. Hell, hes responsible for the first record credited as introducing technical rhymes, metaphors, and speedy delivery.

Kool Moe Dee was/is one of the most intelligent rappers of any generation. The beat and lyrics for "How ya like me now?" were some of the funkiest since James Brown. Also, Kool laid it down like it was supposed to be and took the game seriously. He just knew how to flow in a rapid fashion that you could understand. In other words, he wasn't just saying a lot of nonsense. Overall, Kool's beats and lyrics were just funky and make you want to get up and do some of that straight gangsta boogie back in the day dancing.

Not about money, jewelry, sex and foul language. True, it has its place but it is all too common now. Plus, you can't understand half of what these new cats are saying. Kool Moe Dee is one of the first rappers I've ever liked. With singles such as "How You Like Me Now?", "Wild Wild West", "They Want Money" and his LL Cool J Diss rap "Let's Go."
On a side note, though there was real heat between LL and Kool Moe Dee, they didn't take it to the level that these knuckleheads of today seem too! They kept it on the records and about who was the best rapper, not about who had the most guns!
Anyway, if you want a good piece of hip-hop history, this is a good CD to get.

NOTE: Ignore "Super Pimp." Just look at how he rated others. He dos not know anything about the real hip-hop or a classic album like this.

When this album first came out, many were surprised that old school (then old school could mean that you were out for three years or so, just as long as you were amongst the early rappers) Moe Dee would come back out. Kool Moe Dee, Busy Bee and Spoonie Gee are in my opinion, the only old, old school rappers to make good and updated hip-hop into the modern era without sounding old school.

"Go See the Doctor" was a hip-hop classic out the gate. That was a Teddy Riley prodution. Many people don't know this, but Teddy Riley produced a lot of early hip-hop classics before people knew his name. "Bad Mutha" had hot ryhmes. "I'll put a hurting on rappers/egos are crushed/pride gets swallowed/asses are bust!" You can't deny that.

He has other classics like "Do you Know What Time it is?" This was an all-time hip-hop classic and was a part of the era of hard-core joints. This was probaly Moe Dee's best single he ever put out. The beat was simple but hot.

"Monster Crack" is a song I still like because not only is it musical and sounds good, the hook it hot and what he is saying is true, but funny and serious at the same time. With songs like that (there were a lot of crack songs out then), it is a wonder why so many still picked up the pipe. Songs like that stayed in my mind and I never touched a pipe!

He also has "Kool Moe Dee" wich is a long song of non-stop rymes to show the world why he is supposed to be the best. Even then he knew that "...

IN THIS "NEW HIT RAPPER EVERY FIVE MINUTES" WORLD THAT WE LIVE IN, EVERYBODY IS QUICK TO FORGET PIONEERS LIKE KOOL MOE WHO SET THE STAGE FOR OTHERS. THIS IS A DOPE ALBUM. "GO SEE THE DOCTOR", A SONG ABOUT STDs IS HYSTERICAL ("NOW I KNOW WHY HER X-BOYFRIEND DAVE, CALLS HER MRS. MICROWAVE). MONSTER CRACK WAS A WAKEUP CALL TO THE PERILS OF CRACK COCAINE SPREADING THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY IN THE MID EIGHTIES. MOE DEE (RIGHTFULLY SO) HAS A LOUD, COCKY, AND BOASTFUL STYLE, BUT STILL MANAGES TO CONSTRUCT INTELLEGENT AND RELEVANT RHYMES. HIS SEVERAL YEAR BATTLE WITH L.L. (I THINK) GOT STARTED WITH THIS ALBUM. IN THE THANK YOU SECTION OF THIS ALBUM, KOOL GIVES A BACKHANDED THANKS TO LL AND SEVERAL OTHERS FOR "BREAKING MY STYLE OF RAP THROUGH". MOE ALSO SAYS SOMETHING TO THE EFFECT OF,"I WON'T MAKE A...DEAR EVETTE (TYPE OF SONG)", CLAIMING THAT THIS TYPE OF SONG IS FOR YOUR AVERAGE RAPPER. MOE DEE IS INTENSE, POTENT, INTELLIGENT, AND EVERY RAPPER NOWADAYS GREW UP ON HIS MUSIC. WHERE IS HE NOW THOUGH? WHO CARES, AT LEAST HE DIDN'T SELL OUT LIKE SO MANY WEAK RAPPERS OF TODAY DO. ALRIGHT, THIS IS STARTING TO TURN INTO A NOVEL. GOTTA JET.
