If I were Shabazz the Disciple, there is no way in hell I would make my logo "STD"

An absolute fuckin classic.

I know a number of the tracks had been kickin around on vinyl for years, but it doesn't matter - the album is phenomenal. Shabazz is arguably the most talented rapper around. Just listenin to Hip-Pop makes me laugh at the suggestion that Jay-Z is the king of NY. Top it off with a guest appearance (even if I did already have it on vinyl) from my favourite rapper of all time - Poetic, and you've got one of the best albums of the last few years. Ordering his new album now, to see if he can manage a repeat using all new material.

Favourites include:

Hip-Pop (what MC can match the flow on this?)
Cremate 'Em
Surrender (Thieves In Da Night Pt.2)
Thieves In Da Night - Heist
Street Parables
Ghetto Apostles
Lamb's Blood
Organised Rhyme Pt.2

10/10

Word, this is def one of the classics, and what made Shabazz on of my absolute favorite affiliates. And Street Parables is probably my fav track, but it's really tight up there..

this is how a wu killa bee album should sound even though he's not officially a killa bee now. but the CD would have even been more better if he would've included the classics Death Be The Penalty feat. Kavalier and I'm Breathing for You.

Shabazz is dope (Red Hook represent) but the sequencing & skits here were wack-- doesn't effect THE MUSIC but more thoughtful presentation would've been nice.

I like this, dark and grimey sounding stuff here. Street Parables, Organized Rhyme Pt.2, Ghetto Apostle, War Triology's. Cope it if you haven't. 9/10

yeah i like this album alot i think it's mad underrated. But it's not a 10/10, and it's not a classic, it doesn't even compare to Heavy Mental.

I pretty sure this was not meant to be an actually album. It's just unrealeased material. Shabazz says in an interview at chambermusik that he was just testing out the label and wanted to see how they handled putting his material out. He says that the joints on this were not even his bread and butter material.

Yeah I had most of the tracks on 12" already. Most of it was recorded through the nineties, so no, it's not really an album.

i been bumpin this for awhile now, shit is crazy insane, Bazz is droppin knowledge all over this joint plus the guest spots are dope as hell. Street Parables, Lambs Blood, Red Hook Day, Thieves in the night(heist) and Ghetto Apostles are the definite stand out tracks

this record is dope as fucking hell, Shabazz is probably the most underrated rapper spitting for real. i love how he be dropping knowledge all over the album but still comes off as the most gangster motherfucker rapping lol, just check his verses on "Thieves In Da Night" and "Brooklyn Bullshit". flawless, more or less every beat on here hits home as well, shit is alot better than most Killa Beez's albums ever released, he follows through where the Gravediggaz left off in a way.

"Street Parables", "Lamb's Blood", "Thieves In Da Night", "Crime Saga", "Cremate 'Em", "Reed Hook Day", "Organized Rhyme", "Hip Pop", "BKBS", etc, etc. whole album is flavor. only thing missing is "Death Be The Penalty" to make it perfect.

9/10

Totally agree. Even tho' it's not a proper album it's still one of the best things to come out of the Wu.
