Krumbsnatcha Let The Truth Be Told
- Words: Sam Chennault
- Label: Golden Eyes
As any boom bap disciple will tell you, "real" MCs are a dying breed, constantly losing ground to caricatures of libido-enhanced gangstas, oversensitive emo-thugs and jiggy chart toppers. By all definitions, Boston's Krumbsnatcha is a real MC. The problem is that Krumbsnatcha's monotonous flow and self-reflexive themes suggests that he's more adept at guest spots than carrying an entire album. In fact, the album's strongest tracks are the ones featuring guest turns from Ghostface ("Thorough") and Styles P ("Bang Bang"). With a lackluster effort such as this, it's easy to see why "real" MCs are going the way of the dinosaurs.
