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.

Dope fo' real. I mean album is fantastic, Prince did the best of his works. My favourite solo album from Paul.

Nice review, Kane & Keith sound real dope with Prince Paul.

Great album, better than most movies out there aswell. The ending pissed me off, but in a dramatic way.

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