Notas editoriales de iTunes

Released in 1988, By All Means Necessary retained the sonic intensity that had propelled the early BDP singles, but KRS expanded his vision of inner-city realities to include messages of African-American unity and betterment. Give KRS credit. This adjustment took a lot of guts, and it paid off. The rapper was better suited to being a community leader—a secular preacher, really—than he was a gangster. His presence on the mic was as large as his physical presence (the 6’4” KRS was built like a football player), and many of these songs focus on extinguishing any idea that he could be underestimated. Together these 10 songs form a thunderous campaign soundtrack.

Hi, i'm Chris Perry and I love Boogie Down Productions! I played it to my class one day and they were laughing in happiness (Clear throat). The lyrics to this song are poignent and liberal.

Años de actividad: '80s, '90s

Boogie Down Productions was one of the most important and influential hip-hop groups of the latter half of the '80s. Led by the often brilliant and incendiary MC KRS-One, BDP were pioneers of both hardcore and political (or "conscious") rap — and if that seems contradictory, it also illustrates the scope of KRS-One's talent for chronicling and even shaping his culture. Musically, BDP usually employed spare, minimal backdrops that accentuated KRS-One's booming delivery, and they were also among...
