KRS-One and Buckshot’s new album Survival Skills does better than merely survive, it inflicts the kind of lyrical damage only truly dope emcees are capable of inflicting. The album’s last song to be featured on DJBooth is Clean Up Crew, a banger that I previously described as “the album’s grimiest.” With typically muscular verses from, KRS, Buckshot and feature artist Rock of Heltah Skeltah (if only Sean Price was part of the crew), and production worthy of a military operation from illmind, Clean Up Crew gives hip-hop a much need clean sweep. If only wack hip-hop could really be washed away so easily. Survival Skills was released Sept. 15, on Duck Down Records and is available in stores and online now.
