Highlights include the masterpieces "Come Clean," "Ain't the Devil Happy" and "You Can't Stop The Prophet" as well as the absolute guilty pleasure (given politically correct attitudes) "Da Bitchez" and "D.Original." Succeeding albums by Jeru The Damaja did capture similar moments of excellence, but none were as seamlessly electrifying as a whole. Listening to this album is an outright prerequisite to anyone who claims to really know, or want's to really know, what the ABC'S of hip hop are.
If anything, you would think it not being more than 10 years old that "The Sun Rises in the East" would be used as the present standard for quality hip-hip.
Anyway, that being said. This is definitely a collectors item, and a life long head nodding piece.
