The Last Emperor "Bums" (1997)
The Last Emperor always comes with the lyrics and concepts, but probably never stronger than on the record. "Secret Wars Pt. 1" is the Rappers vs. Superheroes epic (that later appeared on The Last Emperor's mediocre album in '03), but "Bums" is f*ckin' ill...almost makes you want to burn all your possessions so you can join in with the anthem. Oh, and as a bonus, the best Isaac Newton reference ever made:
While other MC's rhyme about guns and shootin'
I drop science on your dome just like Sir Isaac Newton
Who else but The Last Emperor will rhyme "light your spliff" with "choosey mothers choose Jiff"? Enjoy these classics...includes the instrumentals for "Secret Wars" and "Bums", as well as "Monumental" (dope as well).
Finally, there's no date on the 12", and I couldn't track down a reference on-line...if someone can correct the "1998" designation, please do.
