By the time Funke Funke Wisdom came out in 1991, Kool Moe Dee’s style seemed antiquated in comparison to younger groups like A Tribe Called Quest. However, the legendary rapper’s last great album contains several classic songs, including How Kool Can One Blackman Be, Time’s Up, and Rise ‘N’ Shine, in which Chuck D and KRS-One back him. Moe Dee even nods to West Coast rap with Here We Go Again and finds time for one last swipe at LL Cool J with the venomous Death Blow. Funke, Funke Wisdom Kool Moe Dee.

Kool Moe Dee's popularity had faded cosiderably by 1991, when Jive/RCA released Funke Funke Wisdom. This is hardly his finest hour. This isn't a terrible album by any means, but Dee is capable of much more. Though it's hard to miss just how much technique he has, it doesn't serve as well this time
Bottom Line: Funke, Funke Wisdom should not forgotten for it shows the growth of an underrated pioneer. Kool Moe Dee rhymes on this album are still great and the production was on point(except for the two songs mentioned in the filler section). All in all its a good album that should be a part of your Kool Moe Dee collection. One person found this helpful. Moe Dee is real old school, sparse beats with lots of macho posturing. The kind of free style that PE made irrelevant, but it took awhile for the MC's to get the word. He's pretty quick and fairly interesting given his self-imposed limitations, and this album is a good pick to get a feel for him. One amusing thing about him is he has a lisp, a funny affliction for a macho rapper. Not really my thing, by fans of Eric B & Rakim, 3rd Base, Big Daddy Kane and LL Cool J will probably enjoy him.
