AllMusic Review by

More soul-based than his previous records, Kane not only has a slightly changed musical style on Prince of Darkness, but changes his rapping style to suit the sound, bringing a faster, twisting wordplay to his rhymes. When the change in style works -- as in "I'm Not Ashamed" -- the record is deadly, but when it doesn't, it's deadly boring; unfortunately, most of the record doesn't work.
