Prince Paul Disc Boasts All-Stars

De La Soul producer Prince Paul's second solo album, Prince Among Thieves (Feb. 23), features an all-star hip-hop cast of characters acting out an urban tragedy scripted by Paul. Among the rappers contributing to the album are Everlast, Biz Markie, Kool Keith, RZA, Big Daddy Kane, Special Ed, De La Soul, Xzibit and Chubb Rock. "It's just a story spoofing every movie I've ever seen," Paul said of the album's plot line. "I was watching 'Juice,' 'Grease,' Woody Allen's 'Sleeper' and Master P's 'I'm 'Bout It,' all squished together with my own personal experience."
