Get the UK double vinyl pressing - the US version cuts three tracks and the interludes to make way for a 'best of BDP' on side 4 - Why????

UK version is much better then US, i dont know why but the track listing is different, very strange, some lines are different aswell. very lame and i really dont understand why KRS would do this especially on the US release. dope album none the less 4/5

KRS-One is the only hip hop artist I listen to because he only raps about real subjects and real things instead of all the other materialism mainstream hip hop/rap focuses on.
I give this album a high rating and I recommend you hear some of Kris's stuff if you are in the least bit into hip hop, for instance I know this guy who is into nothing but country music yet has THIS album on cd sitting on his shelf.
This self titled album is one of his best.
