Wrath of the Math

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Jeru the Damaja claims Wrath ”was created to SAVE hip-hop.” He almost succeeds, but not without contradictions: Jeru expertly satirizes phony gangstas on ”Tha Bulls—,” while casting himself as a ghetto superhero in ”Revenge of the Prophet (Part 5).” But his positive rhymes on Wrath of the Math ultimately win the day: Combined with DJ Premier’s head-bobbing minimalist funk, Jeru tells it like it is like no other.
