In my opinion, the greates concept album ever. Prince Among Thieves tells the story of a aspiring emcee, Tariq, that has to hustle in order to make it big in the Rap game. This is such an entertaining and brilliant CD. Prince Paul is like a Hip Hop Shakespeare. Amazing and compelling story with great lyrics and beats. If you don't have this album go buy it.

Pretty dope, 7/10. Some boring beats, but damn, it's so original. The whole story, the whole drama, fake friends, drugs, it's really gangstah.

peace to the underground & underdogz- paul made the best decision in making breeze the main charcter; b4 this album i didnt care much bout breeze but he's defintily underated-just listen to PAIN 10/10 from start to finish

very solid LP and yes the greatest concept Lp ever made.

good performances by Kane, Everlast and Kool Keith(Weapon World is one of my all time favorites...KK is a master at that style fuck Andre 3000 he ain't got shit on KK)

Brilliant idea well carried out - though I've heard marginally better concept albums: 'Astral Weeks' anyone?

the ending is so frustrating!!

9.5/10 - I bought this album when it dropped in '99 and I'm still entertained by the story when ever I put it on.. All this great characters involved, Count Mackula, Chris Rock's crackhead, Crazy Lou, etc...

Whats bad about the ending? Just because it wasn't a happy one doesn't make it bad, although the final song where True sticks the knife in is tough to take. In a way thats ill though because it shows you the morality, don't get involved with poisoning communities for papes. For real this album is great, and another thing thats cool is that i've put a couple of these songs on compilations and they stand on there own as well as part of a whole story.

Pure genius concept album with some of the best beats I've ever heard. One of the very best hip-hop albums of the last ten years. Between this and Juggaknots how the fuck hasn't Breeze got a solo career? And what happened to Horror City? They were cool.

Classic 10/10.

It would of been better with videos to accompany it, or one big long video for the entire album, then it wouldve been classic.

Kool Keith on Weapon World is hilarious

they made a whole video version, but all that ended up getting released was the trailer:
