Prince Paul- A Prince Among Thieves
Genre: Hip Hop/Conceptual
Favorite Track: War Party, You Got Shot, and The Men In Blue
From the brilliant mind of Prince Paul comes A Prince Among Thieves. Prince Paul is a legend in hip hop (being a founding member of Gravediggaz, a producer of De La Soul's first three albums and a member of Stetsasonic) and created, in my opinion, one of the best conceptual albums of all time. The album is about an aspiring emcee named Tariq played by Breezly Brewin (of Juggaknots) and features appearances from Everlast of House of Pain, De La Soul, Kool Keith, Big Daddy Kane, Chubb Rock, Biz Markie, Chris Rock (who plays a gay prostitute), Sadat X of Brand Nubian, Xzibit, Kid Creole, Special Ed, The RZA, and Buckshot of Black Moon. If you have not heard this album, I highly recommend it.
