This is political hip hop for folks over 40 not for youths!!!,
This review is from: New Whirl Odor (Audio CD)
I was in Best Buy ... by the way, seeing that I am a Chuck D fan I follow the PE website constantly ... he said the album was not due until Nov, but it was out in Oct when I found it.
I am just proud of Chuck that he has not sold out hip hop or black folk, for that matter. Seeing we need our voices still to be heard in light of Katrina *hello!* and AMERIKKKA to be held accountable. I have NOT stop playing it, seeing that the this bullcrap that they call HIP POP IS ALL about $$$$$$, women, sex, etc. The track I love (which all are cool)... but I have favorite tracks which are "makes ya blind," "new whirl odor," which Chuck just blows the roof off the ... "its scary getting screwed without a dictionary, revolution," "preachin to the quiet." The thing I really love is Chuck hits the black church in amerikkka with statements like "hypo preach," "say ain't nothin' worse than a new black church be lyin' on truth cause it hurts," "black man came in the sweet name of Jesus cost me a DOLLAR at the floor of Creflo." Creflo Dollar, that is. Jack leg preacher, here's another one "preacher lyin' on the truth to raise his roof," "playing wicked religion so the people believe it," "you prayin' to God while their playin' with God." So as you see, PE is a group that amerikkka needs. Seeing that amerikkka does not like Chuck in this bling bling culture i am conviced that pe will be here for a while as long as they stay true to what is going on in the black community. Pe will the measuring stick to what true hip hop is all about as chuck says the who the when the why the what
