KRS-One has returned with an new LP Now Hear This. The legendary wordsmith and philosopher has 18 energizing tracks on this album for new hip hop heads and long time fans. This is LP is the sign on of the times of things happening in the African American community in today’s generation.

He talks about police brutality and how the U.S. drug policy is affecting black people. This is the activist coming out in KRS and what every young man and woman needs to hear.

Much of the subject matter on NOW HEAR THIS deals with the current social challenges of our time and documents the often ignored views of America’s “other” citizens. KRS-One has always been ahead of his peers with beats and rhymes that have guided and developed Hip Hop itself, but with songs like “Drugs Won”, “American Flag”, “From the Beginning Again” and G Simone’s “Oh Cruel Mob” poem which concludes the album. Listen to the album below.
