VA – Rap Declares War (CD) (1992) (FLAC + 320 kbps)

Rap Declares WAR

Conceptually, this is very strong. With the imprimatur of the remaining members of War and their longtime manager Jerry Goldstein, the group’s tracks are used as samples and/or backing for some well-known and not-so-well-known rappers to pay homage to. For the most part it works, because the talent (e.g., The Beasties, Ice-T, 2Pac, De La Soul) is there. However, tracks by those artists have been available on their earlier discs…And the lesser-known material, which also comes from previously released sources, is simply not as outstanding, ranging from the lackadaisical (Too Short) to the doggedly polemical (Brand Nubian). The title track is a new War number and does a great job of stating the band’s significance…In fact, this entire disc is fairly remarkable in showing how influential War has remained as a source point for rap, both in groove and social consciousness…
