KRS-ONE and Marley Marl – Hip-Hop Lives

Who would have ever thought these two would get together and make an album? I guess it’s true what they say, time heals all wounds. KRS-One and Marley Marl, two of Hip-Hop’s greats, coming together for an album should be regarded as a landmark. Sadly, due to a lack of history, many current Hip-Hop fans might not understand why this is important. The dynamic duo feuded for 20 years, but they’ve managed to squash the issues they had with each other and the album they created, Hip-Hop Lives, is a testament to what Hip-Hop can be. There’s everything from education, to history, to just straight raw skills as both KRS-ONE and Marley Marl prove that age doesn’t have to be an issue in Hip-Hop. It seems every few years KRS does this, releases another album to remind folks that he should still, even all these years later, be listed in everybody’s top ten MCs of all time. Hip-Hop Lives is simply dope Hip-Hop.
