Rap Declares War

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap; Lead Performer: Various Artists

The Latino pop band War has never landed the respect it was due — except in the rap world. This eye-opening anthology, Rap Declares War, compiles hip-hop records built on samples of War hits like ”The Cisco Kid” and ”Why Can’t We Be Friends.” Judging by the heavyweight lineup (Ice-T, De La Soul, Kid Frost, Beastie Boys), War records make a perfect base for rap records; barrio tales and gang-rumble rhythms have, alas, never gone out of style.
