Review by Steve 'Flash' Juon

Artist: KRS-One & Buckshot f/ DJ Revolution
Title: Survival Skills
Label: Duck Down Records

The title track off upcoming September 15th album uniting Buckshot & KRS-One takes the momentum of "Robot" and keeps it flowing, with both rappers sounding inspired by the Ill Mind track. KRS: "Y'all want the crown/But why should I battle you if next week they gonna put you in the ground?/That's a waste of time." Buckshot: "Who cares? They want that pop shit, that soft hip-hop shit/That KRS and Buck not shit." Unapologetic and defiant, these two giants of the New York rap scene take their philosophy on the industry from the earliest days of Kris Parker's career, and if you don't like it they'll walk right up to your face and DISS YOU. Fortunately that's not going to happen - this is another win for rap's best new tag team.
