KRS-One, Tragedy Khadafi & A.G. Call Politicians Modern Day Gangsters (Audio)
Since his days of running with the Juice Crew, Tragedy Khadafi has been the Intelligent Hoodlum. “Modern Day Gangsta,” from Trag’s upcoming summer album, is a clear extension of those days. The song unites the onetime Marley Marl protege with KRS-One and A.G.
Each MC provides a rugged verbal essay of the mistreatment, violence, and social inadequacies in their communities. Aimed largely at police and politicians, the Stricknine-produced string and drum arrangement takes no shorts, and mines no words. From Tragedy’s early work and Black Market Militia tenure to KRS’ “Black Cop” era, to Showbiz & A.G.’s Runaway Slave days, this is a needed perspective from three arching voices in the Hip-Hop landscape.
