Review by David Jeffries

Minneapolis rapper Prof attacks rhymes in the same way that Jackass' Stevo-O attacks an exposed nail or a bathtub full of tarantulas. Dig his album Liability's hyper single "Bar Breaker," and listen to the way this lyrical stuntman barks out some Kool Keith-like rhymes ("Quick, grab the trophies/You can leave behind the opium") but at a breakneck speed, and then know that the great "I Had Sex in the '90s" delivers on its glorious title. Guest shots from Tech N9ne ("Ghost") and Petey Pablo ("King") represent how weird and wild this guy plays it, but the local emo kids Atmosphere love the man as well, and they're likely appreciative that his brand of chaos is crafted as it comes. Liability is proof that Prof is an off-kilter but discerning MC.
