Prince Poetry is one of my favorite artists with his background coming from Organized Konfusion fame. This release features Prince Po spitting some vicious rhymes over the very talented TomC3's beats. TomC3 is from the bay and creates some very eccentric dope beats for Prince Po to do his thang on. This album is definitely an underground release due to the chemistry that is created between the artists and the producer. Stand out tracks for me are BAD BRAINZ, NOW AND THEN, ROCKLAND (FT DEL), THE INTRO, and CHOOSE. If you have been looking for ann album that strays away from the norm, this is it.

Another great album from Tom. Keeping us all entertained by selecting great MC's (Prince Po this time) to go along with incredible guests. Although I prefer Project Polaroid over the new album, that doesn't mean this is bad. It's just that Polaroid was incredible. Samurai is great in it's own way. It's not as moody as Polaroid, but it steel maintains that LO-FI feel that Tom is into. Prince Po is incredible on this. In fact, I think this is his best solo outing. Yes, even better than the slickness. I think the fact that it's one producer throughout it helps keep it together and cohesive. The guests are dope as well, Kool Keith ( who Tom always seems to get the best out of him ), Motion Man, Del tha Funkee Homosapien, and AG from the incredible DITC crew!!! There isn't really much to complain about with this release. Maybe it was a little too short?? But I think that just adds to the replay factor. That would be my only complaint. Oh and Prince Po should have rapped on the intro beat. I feel it was a waste to just let it run like that without the vocals. It was a dope beat!! I definitely recommend this to anyone who is into that GOOD hip-hop!!!

TomC3 has quietly released incredible recordings. First, the slept on Project Polaroid album with Kool Keith and now Saga of the Simian Samurai with Prince Po. The music is varied with different tempos and feels. Po sounds very inspired. I am really liking the song Now and Then. The beat is crazy. I like the Lo-Fi aesthetic of the projects he releases. It's too bad his projects have been under the radar for the most part. They deserve much more recognition. If you like your music on the dusty side, pick this up. If you are into the polished "radio" sound, stay far away from this release.

I've been a huge fan of both Organized emcees since Fudge Pudge dropped. As for solid boom bap, Prince Po has been dropping more constant music and in less time. (although Pharoahe has been dealing with a lot of label politics)

When I came across this disc I honestly had no idea what it was and who was involved. If it wasn't for the record shop I frequent filing it under Prince Po and Tom C3 I'd still be clueless.

Compared to his last work "Prettyblack" it's a departure from what I would call Prince Po's signature sound. That's not a bad thing. A lot of the tracks on this project still give me memories of Organized Konfusion and I can't help but picture Po and Pharoahe going back and forth on them. There are some definite repeaters in the mix like "Now and Then," which make you feel not only the beat, but most important the lyrics and flow.
