hijack - the horns of jericho (1991)

I mentioned in the post about London Posse that they could be considered, in some ways, to be the English equivalent of EPMD. well there is no such ambiguity here, as Hijack are basically just an English rip-off of Public Enemy. the rapping is a complete imitation of Chuck D, and the songs tackle social issues in the same way that PE do. still, this is pretty interesting as a novelty. and some of the songs are really good, too. just don't expect too much originality.
