    this album is really great, i think bill will be viewed as one of the greatest of all time for sure

    look what fucking allmusic says about the album…..1.5 stars out of 5, unfuckingbelievable

    Think rap metal is dead? Think again. While maybe not as overtly obnoxious as your Limp Bizkits of yesteryear, there are still artists out there who continue to mix and match elements of both aforementioned styles. For instance, take Ill Bill. His sophomore effort, 2008’s Hour of Reprisal, is more rap than metal, but with numerous tips of the cap to metal bands (in addition to cameos by Max Cavalera, and members of Killswitch Engage and Bad Brains), Bill is certainly well versed in metal. But does it all fit together? Not exactly. Both “Trust Nobody” and “A Bullet Never Lies” is your typical tough guy rhymin’ and rappin’ shtick, while tracks such as “U.B.S. (The Unauthorized Biography of Slayer)” and “The Most Dangerous Weapon Alive” namechecks the rapper’s favorite metal bands. However, the track that’s certain to cause the biggest ruckus is “White Nigger,” as Bill talks about the tough life he experienced — growing up as a Caucasian rapper (and how “Mel Gibson never liked Danny Glover” and “My peoples would have beat the fuckin’ shit out of Kramer”). Somewhere, Vanilla Ice and Fred Durst are mighty proud of Ill Bill’s talents.

  12. yeaH from front to back this whole track is murKy in the murking of murkiness….

    It doesn’t really suprise me. Most people who do music reviews are failed musicians themselves so the only way they can get even is by writing shit like that

  14. the person who did that review is a raging douchebag

  15. Wow who the fuck is allmusic?

    *smh*

  16. Slotter

    aah. dope video. solid album

  17. Wow who the fuck is allmusic? *smh*
    allmusic.com is a great site for music research, full of staff reviews, credits, track listings, etc.
    Now I’m not the biggest Ill Bill fan, nor have I heard all of the new album, but even I know that review is incredibly misguided.
    A tiny slight on an otherwise useful site.

  18. hahahaha

    people who don’t live rap don’t get rap. even if they listen to it, they listen to Kanye West and Lil Wayne, and Wu (ussually post-Forever) for credibility, and think they can have an opinion. no, they can’t. they are ignorant. that’s what I find in my experiences, anyway

  19. staas

    ^^^fuck that shit, rap music is for everybody

  20. HOGWASH

    This song and video are dope. I’m coppin this album today! Ill Bill is one of the most consistant in the game.

  21. Rufpoet

    Prop’s to Ill Bill for his mention in this Months Source magazine as well.. !!

  22. ceej

  23. max prime
