DESCRIPTION
After making their indelible marks in hip hop, luminaries KRS-One and Buckshot, arguably two of the games most prolific emcees to remain consistent since the golden days, link up to give fans a collaboration for the decade with Survival Skills. On the surface the album is a testament to the resiliency of the two lyrical titans, but at its root it can be interpreted as a blueprint for life and in hip hop through the years. ''Robot,'' was the first single off of the album and was also a jab at the mainstream's obsession with the overused auto tune featured in today's pop, rap and R&B songs and released six weeks prior to Jay Z's ''The Death Of Auto Tune.'' ''I don't want people to get the averaged cliched version and thinking that we're dissing people,''' Buckshot clarifies. Still gritty tracks like ''Clean Up,'' featuring Rock of Heltah Skeltah and the politically minded ''Running Away'' featuring Immortal Technique, make Survival Skills a well balanced album for any fan of the boom bap that is sorely lacking these days. Featuring production by Havoc (of Mobb Deep), Black Milk, Marco Polo, Nottz, Illmind and 9th Wonder with guest appearances by Talib Kweli, Mary J. Blige, Smif-N-Wessun, Naledge (of Kidz In The Hall), Slug (of Atmosphere) and more.
