King Vulture, Infamous soldier, G-Unit gorilla, R.I.P

Prodigy - Raining Guns & Shanks
(From the Return Of The Mac sessions; 2007)



Night of the living notty heads, rebel soldier without a pause. You not an insurgent, please go home if you don't recognise and realise Raining Guns & Shanks as the G.O.A.T officially-unreleased Prodigy deep cut. Alchemist really shoulda stumped up some of his own Shady/trustfund money to clear that J.B's sample on this one - if The Grunt was good enough for P.E twice on It Takes A Nation Of Millions... then it was good enough for V.I.P once on Return Of The Mac.


Sparty's on the photoshop, tell the rest of the crew. It's funny because of the aforementioned pissed off ravers who really bought Return Of The Mac thinking it was a new album by The Prodigy.

Thoughts on Hegelian Dialectic?

Never heard it.

Does Paul Joseph Watson make a guest appearance on there?

Don't recall hearing PJW on it. Hegelian Dialectic isn't exactly a fitting swan song for any rapper of P's stature. Better than anything Mindbender or his batshit brother has ever done, though. That's a given.

Conspiracy is more sane than Mindbender these days.

As an enthusiast of paranoia, I enjoyed Hegelian Dialectic, even tho he's basically getting his Immortal Technique on. I think in one song he rejects seeing the world in terms of conspiracy theories, then questions the 9/11 narrative in the next verse.

I understand where the ravers are coming from. I once bought All This And Nothing by the Psychedelic Furs because they looked like a punk band on the cover. "Pretty In Pink," however, is good.

I bought vinyl from "Hip Hop" mailorder stores who advertised in HHC from The Lynch Mob, Wrecking Crew and Mother Superior thinking they were Da lench mob, The World Class Wreckin Cru and Mother Superia.

As for "Hegelian Dialectic?" Triangulate Ka, Mf Grimm and Killah Priest and dial down the skills a couple notches and that sums it up. As with ODB, Blade, Bushwick Bill or Michael Barrymore, I am extremely uncomfortable with other peoples' mental illness/nervous breakdowns as entertainment.
