      SMH….it would be easy to insult you, but I’ll chalk it up to youth, not your fault.
      Fam, download Uncle Sam’s Curse, listen to every song, and then you’ll understand why this is an article on this website. I guarantee you’ll listen to Black Superman and Uncle Sam’s Curse (the track the album was named after) more than once…

      To understand where hip hop is going, it is necessary to understand where it came from…

    RIP, totally shocked. Above The Law were one of the most incredibly underrated groups in Hip-Hop history and KMG was a huge part of that. He had great flow and writing skills, will be greatly missed by me and all fans who know the deal.

    Above The Law is definitely respected on the West Coast! Some critics “probably” don’t respect, or understand their sound or style if they are not from the West…specifically Southern California.
    I appreciate what Above The Law did for my crew and myself.

    R.I.P KMG of Above The Law

        What’s “Not So” Compadre???  I said: “Some critics “PROBABLY” don’t respect, or understand their sound or style if they are not from the West…specifically Southern California”. What didn’t you understand about my comment?
