Hailing from the same borough that produced the Wu Tang Clan, Kritikal could just be Staten Island’s next hip hop hero.‘The New Drug’, the debut album from Kritikal – aka The KRT – deals with as many themes and issues as there are in life. It is real and honest, perceptive and poignant, funky and funny all at the same time.
