The Teacher sounds explosive on stage, tearing into BDP's
greatest tracks and the myth that live hip-hop is bland and unnecessary. In fact, the pure energy of this album can be offputting at first -- the group jumps around their catalog, playing fragments of their classics and complete tracks from Edutainment
, and the audience sings along with almost every track. Live Hardcore Worldwide -- Paris, London & NYC!
may not be the first live hip-hop album (2 Live Crew
released one a couple of months before BDP
), but it is certainly the best.
