KRS One* – MC’s act like they don’t know

I’m just back from a wedding at the very scenic Castle Leslie. Big day! Fun times even if I am starting to feel a little bit of wedding fatigue.

A good friend sent me this track earlier in the week as a reminder of the times when we both discovered and shared lots of hip hop together. He titled his email “One of the greatest hip hop tunes ever (lyrically anyway)”. I don’t know if I can put it any better than that. It also features beats from the excellent DJ Premier, which is always a treat.

One last interesting thing about this track is that my buddy and I first heard it on a KRS One retrospective compilation that I received one Christmas from my Dad which was both an awesome and unlikely present in just about equal measures!
