A Very Innovative Idea...

I have to say the idea of marrying hip hop with classic opera was waaaay ahead of it's time when this album was first released. Most of the songs on this album were masterpieces which effectively showcased the talents of the featured artists. What I loved most about it was the fact that introduced a generation to a style of music they would never have been interested in ordinarily, myself included. I do recommend it highly to every serious hip hop/rap fan out there...you cant say you've heard every thing until you hear this!
