    "Gotta realize half of the readers were not born when Rock dis funky joint or time to say Peace" ^ true but that doesn't give them the green light to be disrespectful and ignorant I said this many times before, many of these kids are not our young, but the target demographic who have no wish to uphold the culture or understand the history

    Man, RIP! PRT was one of the most underrated conscious groups of the 90s. One thing that made them hot was they spit intellect over dope ass beats. A lot of these conscious groups might as well go accapella because the production is weak. Peace to Digable Planets too

      No. Drake owns them in the booth, and actually would have liked to employ them to wash his cars.

      I Care.....the horns to "Shaquila" was the soundtrack of me coming home from school. My favorite PRT record was "Easy Star" no one ever mentions that record. The baseline was extra gangsta & Father Shaheed had the crowd amped jumping up & down in the name of Hip Hop. Most people who comment here were introduced to Hip Hop after watching 8 Mile or their black roommate in college. We didn't grow up with these people who comment on here, so we can't expect them to have lived the Hip Hop we did. They do t have a DJ EZ Rock or a Father Shaheed who orchestrated the soundtrack of their life, hell he who comments on the internet can't even name 5 records they enjoyed 5 years ago that had an impact like "Rock This Funky Joint" or "It Takes Two". So on behalf of what's left of Hip Hop, we salute our fallen soldiers who grew us in Hip Hop.
