Paris - Sleeping with the Enemy

By Billboard Staff, Billboard Magazine


Second album from Oakland, Calif.-based rapper-which was shunned by more than one label because of potentially explosive content-is weighted with flowing grooves and some of the smoothest pro-black rhymes around. The performer expresses outrage in a number of tracks: There's a love (and respect) song to black women called "Assata's Song"; "Think About It," which chastises members of the black community for many of the problems it faces; "Coffee, Donuts And Murder," a cop-killing fantasy; and "Bush Killa," in which a Presidential rubout gets plotted. The music functions as no-passive-resistance politics and great rap music.
