Poor Righteous Teachers
had a strong following during the nineties, and their outspoken front-man is about to drop his second solo effort after an extended hiatus (PRT’s last group album was called Declaration Of Independence and was scheduled to come out on an indy in 2001, but never saw a retail release). The Talented Timothy Taylor is scheduled to hit the shelves in August, and although it’s been nine years since Wise Intelligent had a record out, songs like “Still Black” demonstrate that the break hasn’t softened his resolve one bit. With lines like “crackas play me like I’m about to rob ‘em!” and “half these wiggas don’t know nothin’ ’bout rhymin'”, Wise is sure to upset a few sensitive “ice-agers” (which is always a good thing in my books).

Good news for MF Grimm fans – he’s just announced that he’ll be releasing a triple album – American Hunger – to be released on Day By Day Entertainment on September 20. In Grimm’s own words: “This album is a big bowl of blood for a blood thirsty nation. Love, Hate, War, Peace, Jealousy. America is a place where everyone loves you when you’re a star, but those same people will also call for your head. So many people became stars here with such tragic endings. Is that the price for fame? I decided to make it a triple CD of all new material because it’s never been done in hip hop before.”

Sounds like an ambitious project to say the least. Recent double albums from Nas and Jay-Z have fallen short of expectations, but if anyone can pull off a triple album, it’d be Grimm. Look-out for a review of this epic soon. Grimm has also just launched an online magazine of the same name at www.americanhunger.com which covers everything from “MF Grimm’s political views to showcasing new artists, businesses, food and health columns, even down to clothing and make-up”. There’s already a lot of content on there so it’s worth the visit.

i don’t care whose album it is.. the words alone “triple cd” make me tune out.

bad idea imo

i’m pretty geeked for a new wise intelligent record. i’m actually kinda glad that album never came out, the lead single was awful and it’d be a shame if they tarnished their otherwise flawless legacy. this new wise single seems to be a step in the right direction.

I never really got into PRT apart from the 12″s from the first album, which i liked but not as much as everybody else who flipped over them.

yeah but they are nobody’s and no one heard it.. and anyone can “release” or “drop” and album.. they probably put it out on their own “label”

de la said the same shit: “triple album” with AOI. but if a year goes by between each issue (and if they each ain’t really all that), i don’t think it counts.
