Politics of the Business is the third album by American hip hop producer Prince Paul. This album is considered to be a concept album similar to A Prince Among Thieves. The concept for this album, however, is the concept of following-up a concept album that did not sell too well (that album being A Prince Among Thieves). The album features guest appearances from Ice-T, DJ Jazzy Jeff, MF Doom, Biz Markie, Chuck D, Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock, and more.

A Prince Among Thieves is the second studio album by hip hop artist Prince Paul. A Prince Among Thieves was well received by music critics. Music essayist Robert Christgau has called it "the closest thing to a true rock opera you've ever heard".

Paul Edward Huston, (born April 2, 1967) better known by his stage name Prince Paul, is an American disc jockey, record producer and recording artist from Amityville, New York. Paul began his career as a DJ for Stetsasonic. Since then he has worked on albums by Boogie Down Productions, MC Lyte, Big Daddy Kane and 3rd Bass, among others

The concept album has been something of a rare beast in hip-hop. There have been plenty of rap albums with a cinematic feel, but very few actually tie things together with a coherent narrative throughout. Leave it to Prince Paul, long one of hip-hop's most imaginative producers, to assemble the first successful rap opera in A Prince Among Thieves. Not only does it maintain a coherent story line via skits that actually aren't filler, it manages to stay musically compelling and focused throughout

A Prince Among Thieves is the second studio album by hip hop artist Prince Paul. A Prince Among Thieves was well received by music critics A Prince Among Thieves. Studio album by. Prince Paul A single version and video in the style of a film trailer was also produced. Although conceived as a story that would be filmed, a movie never came about.

And that’s how A Prince Among Thieves, 20 years old tomorrow, came into being.

A Prince Among Thieves is actually the second concept album from ex-De La Soul producer and Gravediggaz member Prince Paul. While his first and his debut album, Psychoanalysis: What is It" covered a vague topic of different mental conditions such as schizophrenia, A Prince Among Thieves is much more ambitious. Overall, A Prince Among Thieves contains some good songs and an engaging enough story but often seems to focus more on the story than the music. The album is plagued by filler and unnecessary skits that ruin the flow. The huge amount of different styles and guest rappers help to stop it dragging but it definitely is too long.
