I'll be the first to admit that I quit listening to rap in the mid 90s, but this album is way cool. It samples the music/sound effects from the original G.I. Joe animated series and mixes it with new rhymes for a perfect mashup of modern rap and old school 80s.

One of my usual reservations about modern rap is the language, but this album is not explicit and uses only mild language. Most of you know also know that I'm not one for sampling 80s songs either, but hearing effects and music from RAH pretty much made me want to listen to this entire album. Has been awhile since I've watched some episodes so hearing the classic background music and stories about Snake Eyes, Destro, and Cobra-La took me back.

A big shout-out to Paul Panfalone of PaulPants.Com for bringing the album to my attention. Yo Joe!
