Throughout, both veterans sound as hungry and invigorated as any of their rap counterparts. "Projects like these are projects that motivate me," KRS says. "The idea to work with another MC that has his own persona and style and do a real collaboration in the studio, that's motivation. I already got 16 albums of my own," he adds.
What KRS-One and Buckshot have created is an album that is socially responsible, lyrically sharp and sonically banging. Buckshot sums it up best, "Hip-Hop was started as an option to not killing each other. We were in the ghettos and we were real fucked up. We created Hip-Hop so we didn't have to do that anymore."
"The album is called Survival Skills, because that is what it takes."
