yo i found the tracklisting with production credits and features to it.. looks ILL - Illmind, 9th Wonder, Marco Polo and Nottz are some of the illest producers of the "new" generation imo and the guests looks very solid for the most part.

^^^^bounty killer?they got fucking bounty killer on this shit!
fuck yea...tracklisting looks luverly...even though i thought robot was kind of boring...if they keep the 'wack mc/state of hip hop' rhymes to a minimum this could be a very nice album

i love bdp and old krs1 but his new shit is pretty unlistenable to me. i may give this a shot, but im looking forward to next to nothing besides the beats and guests

gotta agree with you on that one, "Survival Skills" was a much better track though - that's a real banger!!

^^better than the front cover but still corny looking
krs-one resembles the dead bear

krs-one resembles the dead bear

funny point, but i like it...fuck all those stupid boring chiggy or grimey hiphop coverarts, this here is something else, why not.
and there´s some symbolism in it, that can ´t be overlooked.

the survival skills you need to survive in nature / rap industry
the dead bear may symbolize competitors in the music biz

ok, maybe it will take some time to get used to it, but for me its not corny nor wack

^^^the concept of this and the cover are fine and i appreciate visual metaphors...they just look so photoshopped and glossy, it looks too artifical.
granted i don't expect them to actually kill a bear for some album art but it all looks too video gamey to me.

09-04-2009, 11:28 AM
ok, true, the overall look is very photoshopy, u right with that.
