Optimistic and spiritual where Jeru was aggressive and metaphysical, Afu-Ra has dozens of good lyrical ideas, though he often phrases the same way, with a heavy focus on multiple internal rhymes à la Rakim. Fortunately, there's a parade of solid productions lending variety, led by Muggs on "Soul Assassination" and DJ Premier on "Mic Stance" and "Defeat.

Afu-Ra essentially splits the difference between Wu-Tang Clan and Jeru the Damaja, and while he can't quite match either, it's hard to make a bad album with those influences. Afu-Ra is a talented lyricist, with a good flow and a moderate lack for multi-syllabic rhymes. He doesn't have a whole lot to say, and his style can definitely feel a bit derivative, making the lyrics somewhat monotonous and forgettable on the whole. Still, Afu-Ra's great flow suggests that there's a lot of potential if only he could break free of his influences and really be himself - and it's not exactly bad to listen to in its own right. The only time I really disliked the lyrics was on the songs with guest artists - Afu-Ra seems to get a little lazy on these songs, and with the sole exception of Steele (of Cocoa Brovaz) on D&D Soundclash, the guest verses are universally boring and phoned in. Given that I already don't like M.O.P. very much, this makes Warfare easily the worst song on the album. That said, while the lyrics were alright, the real strength of this album is the beats. This album's biggest asset is, of course, DJ Premier, who gives the same incredible beats he always does. As a result, songs like Defeat and Mic Stance are some of the best on the album - there's no better soundtrack for Afu-Ra's zen-inspired rhymes. While the rest of the beats aren't quite as strong, they're almost all examples of the great late 90s/early 00s boom bap that I love. I guess this album works better as background noise than it does as an object of scrutiny - this isn't going to change the world or advance the art of hip-hop or anything like that. It's just a solid, well-made, enjoyable piece of turn of the century New York hip-hop, and I think that'll satisfy most retro hip-hop fans.
