Over Their Heads

Nobody understands the Politics of the Business like Prince Paul. In fact, almost nobody understands it at all.

Razor and Tie eventually picked up the album, and Paul shouldn't be so quick to dismiss it as a total failure. While Business may not be Paul's best work, it just may be the album that determines where listeners stand on the man and a litmus test on hip-hop in general. If you get it, then congratulations, you're a hip-hop head with savoir-faire. If you think it's just another collection of mediocre radio-ready rap, then go back to listening to 50 Cent.

The Brian De Palma of hip-hop gazes at his critics in disappointment.

But those in on the joke can rejoice in knowing there are some in the hip-hop universe who are witty, subversive and smart (when did being smart become so awful?) enough to try something besides the same old stuff -- even if that means coming up with a satire on the same old stuff to get their point across.
