Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). In other words, Moe Dee takes his work very seriously and this album is his finest solo work. In fact, his finest lyrical performance may very well be "I Go To Work". Personally, this belongs in a trinity alongside Rakims "Lyrics of Fury" and Kool G Raps "Men At Work" as master works of lyrical craftsmanship. He also values knowledge as exemplified by the albums title track. 2 people found this helpful.
