Now here's a guy who knows how to mix it. Album presentation of songs is vital; you don't want to be lisĀ­tening to exactly the same old style on every track. Michael recognises this and provides us with one of the most diverse albums of rap material which we will hear. Michael attacks drugs, violence, any indiscretion going, in this vital collection of which should challenge anyone within earshot. "Plain and Simple" has an acoustic guitar intro leading into straight talking action. MP shifts up a gear for "They Call Me Crack" telling us, I've destroyed athletes and many a hero/I've decreased bank accounts from millions to zero/I make shooting and stabbing a common affair/Once I take charge, you won't have a prayer". Forget Grange Hill's "Just Say No" of a few years back (yes I know you have!) this is the anthem for war against drugs, play it and play it loud. "Think It Over" and "Peace In A Time Of Chaos" are Michael's pleas for society's future. There will be few more hard hitting albums this year
