An easy contender for best use of harps on a hip-hop track, "Operation Lockdown" finds Heltah Skeltah breaking down some very complex tactical warfare. Rock's opening verse is like a twisted and slightly confusing take on the "Ten Little Indians" children's rhyme, complete with snipers, doors torn off the hinges, and "soldiers gettin' in mo' ass than splinters." Then they uh... transform to chess pieces? Okay?
