Various Artists Hard Truth Soldiers Volume 1
- Words: Sabrina Ford
- Label: Guerilla Funk
Paris isn't kidding-the truth is hard. But who better to bring it to us than him, The Coup, Dead Prez, MC Ren, and "Mr. Black CNN" himself, Chuck D? America's at war at home and abroad as Paris and family chronicle corruption, police brutality, racism, and sexism against a backdrop of baddup-bump slumps; these tracks can start a heated debate as easily as a hot-ass party. However, this compilation is best enjoyed away from distractions such as bumping and grinding. To really hear the hard truth, put on your thinking cap and go for a ride.
