AllMusic Review by

Known as one of the original members of Public Enemy's S1W's, Professor Griff climbs back into the rap ring with the release of BLOOD OF THE PROFIT. PE frontman Chuck D goes behind the boards to produce such tracks as "The Ole B#ch-U-Worryz," "Vicious Cycle" and "Field N#gguhz In A Huddle," which features an energetic vocal performance from Chuck.

As those familiar with Griff's work might imagine, the tracks are more about content than flow. Tracks like "Black Beauty & The B#tch," "Point Blank" and "Common Thread," which features Society & Lord Mecca, touch topics important to Griff and his intended audience, the black community. Amid the contemporary stream of champagne-sipping M.C.'s, Griff delves deep into political controversy and social awareness. This is an album heavy on religious and socio-political vibes. Not your typical '90s hip-hop album.
