EDITORS’ NOTES

Starting in the 2000s, KRS-One began to cling tighter to an antiquated set of hip-hop tenets, but 2001’s The Sneak Attack proved he still kept one ear tuned to the innovations of a younger generation. The album’s centerpiece is “HipHop Knowledge,” which nods to the swirling tempos of Timbaland, while “Hot,” “Crush Them,” and “Get Your Self Up” are rejoinders to the pugnacious attitude of then-current hitmakers like DMX and MOP. While its messages may have been socially conscious, The Sneak Attack convinces its listeners with some of the most brilliantly hostile flows of KRS-One’s career.

CHILL....The authority is here!

This is the first album that got me into KRS and It's definitely my favorite. I was trying to make some changes in my life, and the messages in this album really helped motivate me. I think KRS brings some real self-impowerment messeges with songs like "Get your self up". When ever I put this album on, KRS is like my drill sergant. The Sneak Attack is dope from all angles (beats,lyrical content,production) I suggest you purchase this album, but only if you are ready to feel the power of dj kenny parker and the blast master KRS-ONE!
