We gave it a B+

Rapper KRS-One’s rhyme schemes have always lacked complexity, but his big, boastful voice embodies the audacity of the once-renegade art form. The career spanner A Retrospective includes his most inspired musings on crime (”Love’s Gonna Get’cha”), race (”Sound of Da Police”), and mortality (”Outta Here”). And spare backing tracks by producers like DJ Premiere and Pal Joey are as classically hip-hop as the rapper’s def delivery. B+
