The Last Emperor

Taking his moniker from the Bernardo Bertolucci film epic of the same name, this West Philadelphia native has been an underground hip-hop mover and shaker since the mid-'90s. Having attended Overbrook High, Philadelphia's own hip-hop high, which saw the likes of Cool C, Steady B, and the Fresh Prince pass through its hallowed halls, Last Emp became a B-Boy by osmosis in addition to being a wizard in the classroom. After graduating from the nation's first historically black college (Lincoln University), Emp took his act to New York, where he caught on with storied Lyricist Lounge. Emperor's first on-wax experience was a significant one, appearing alongside KRS-One and Rage Against the Machine's Zach de la Rocha on the cut "C.I.A." from 1998's Lyricist Lounge, Vol. 1. Having served notice to his scholastic street skill, Emperor hit the road to polish up his on-stage performance, occasionally popping up on mix tapes and 12"s from time to time. Having stirred the underground into a frenzy with rumors of a debut album, in early 2000 official word came that Emp had signed with independent kingpin label Rawkus. Distribution problems, however, kept the record off the racks. ~ M.F. DiBella, Rovi

Man I got all last emp's s**t. The Legend of Big Foot. All orignal tracks with some that a lot of cats never even got to hear. And it has the original secret wars song! He also came out with some other tracks that are dope that aren't included in the Magic bonus material. My hope is one day he will put it all out!!!!!!

Ah the unreleased version of Meditation is much better than the one they put on this album. The lyrics are the same, but the instrumental s fit the vocals much better. Get at me if you want to hear it. Also check out C.I.A which is a KRS-One, Last Emp, and Zach de la Rocha collaboratio n .
Dope MC, his Secret Wars song is insane.
