Good news for real hip hop fans as 2 of the greatest artists to ever make hiphop are teaming up for a collaboration album!
Gang Starr production legend DJ Premier has shaped a lot of classic records in his time making beats. Among them was KRS-One's 1993 effort, the excellent Return of the Boom Bap. The album was KRS's first foray into solo territory after five albums with Boogie Down Productions, and was strengthened by Premier's seven contributions. Now, nearly 17 years later, the pair have teamed up again for a new KRS-One album.
According to HipHopDX, the album is a sequel to Return of the Boom Bap, and is called Return of the Boom Bip. Premier was recently quoted as saying, “It's going to be one of the illest albums of 2010,” and Q-Tip, Grand Puba and Ice-T are among those confirmed for the album.
No release date has been set for Return of the Boom Bip, but it should be out this year. Based on the track record that these two artists have, and the quality of recent sequel records like Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx… Pt. II, we certainly have high hopes for this album.
