Pure Poverty, along with PE's Fear of a Black Planet and X Clan's Exodus, literally saved my life. This trio elevated the rap game to the point where rappers wanted to get black instead of get paid. Strictly Mash'ion is a perfect song with one of the best hooks ever. And when you hear Comin' Again, you realize that Wise Intelligent is easily one of the top five rappers ever. He and Culture Freedom, Father Shaheed, and Tony D demonstrate that Five Percenters love themselves and truth--actual facts--is the best ear candy around.

Straight up:

Tony D produced a gem while Wise Intelligent dropped some ill lyrics. All 13 tracks are def head bobbing material, check out the 30 sec samples, all the songs are dope with a good sound and feel. Wise's rasta style of rapping similar to KRS-One's style fits perfectly with Tony D's work on the boards. Wise's rhymes are well constructed and chalked full of knowledge. This album is worth the out-of-print cost. All the songs have a great sound and each in their own right are work of a genius.

Stand up Jerz!

I could easily be one of the members of the band writing this review but I'm not. Suffice it to say this is the best rap I know of. I'm here because I gave away the CD as a present and want to buy a new one. Basically this is rap that has all of the ingenuity you want from adept rappers but without the attitude and the gratuitous use of expletives. I mean Tribe Called Quest is capable and everything but it's not on this kind of tip. Yet while PRT is righteous it isn't boring the way, for instance, Arrested Development is kinda boring. It doesn't take things all the way to the granola level. I think Spearhead did the Arrested Development sort of thing right but it's not exactly rap either. PRT is rap.

this follow-up is nothing but tight! Wise Intelligent, Culture Freedom and Father Shaheed r 3 of Jersey's finest! 2 top-flowing mc's and a awesome d.j., what more u need? i been a PRT fan since they dropped that first single, "Rock Dis Funky Joint". i copped it soon as it hit the music stores. i got their tapes and as soon as cds came out, i got them on cd as well. on this album, "Shakyla" is hottest cut on that album, that piano sample they used is str8! "wake up from those sadden dreams, makin' that she sure is mine. take those earrings and those silly chains, they r simply just a waste of time, the queen is mine". that hook is awesome!
