Prince Paul "A Prince Among Thieves" (Trailer)

Prince Paul A Prince Among Thieves Advert

February 22nd, 1999: Prince Paul released one of the most cohesive concept albums, 'A Prince Among Thieves.' The album plays out like the movie, each track tells the story of Tariq (Breeze Brewin of the Juggaknots), who hustles to put together the scrap to fund studio time for his demo. The album features Xzibit, Kool Keith, Big Daddy Kane, Chubb Rock, Biz Markie, De La Soul, RZA, and more. Chris Rock had bought the rights to the movie, but never made a proper move with it. I've heard there was also a Kickstarter, is that true? Either way, sit with this classic concept album today. The VHS trailer is below, which sets up the project perfectly & damn, that's a big flyer, lol.
