What Had Happened Was "Politics of the Business Episode"

In 2003, after the mishandling of A Prince Among Thieves, Prince Paul found himself in a dark space and made an album reflective of his negative feelings about the music industry. Devoid of his signature skits and melodic samples, Politics of the Business is Prince Paul at his most cynical. He tells the story of putting the album together, its critical/fan reception and how he feels about it now. Politics of the Business features Dave Chappelle, Ice-T, Chuck D, Jean Grae, MF Doom and more! Another great episode from Prince Paul and Open Mike Eagle!
