BOOGIE DOWN PRODUCTIONS - BY ALL MEANS NECESSARY 1988
DUM DUM CLASSIC. MUST HAVE IN YOUR COLLECTION
By All Means Necessary is the second album from hip hop group Boogie Down Productions, released in 1988, on Jive Records. After the murder of DJ/Producer Scott La Rock in 1987, MC KRS-One moved away from the violence that dominated their debut Criminal Minded and began to write socially conscious songs, while using the moniker "The Teacher".
MC SHAN - DOWN BY LAW 1987
ANOTHER MUST HAVE. STUPID DEFFFF
Down by Law is the debut album by East Coast hip hop artist MC Shan. Released at the height of the Bridge Wars, a feud between artists from Queensbridge (such as MC Shan) and South Bronx (such as KRS-One), the album contains various dis tracks. The most prodigious of these disses are "Kill That Noise" and "The Bridge," which was later re-created as "Da Bridge 2001" by various Queensbridge artists. The album is produced by Marley Marl. It was the only Cold Chillin'/Warner Bros. album that was never initially released on CD by its distributor. The album was not released on the compact disc format until 1995, long after the 5-year distribution deal with Warner Bros. Records ended.
ICE T - RHYMES PAY 1987
ONE OF MY TOP 3 HIP HOP ALBUMS OF ALL TIME. STORY TELLING AT ITS FINEST
Rhyme Pays is the debut album of Ice-T, released in 1987.
The album, especially tracks like "6 'N the Mornin'," is considered to have defined the gangsta genre, and was the first hip-hop album to carry a Parental Advisory warning label, although it was years before the industry-standard explicit-lyrics sticker was developed.
TERMINATOR X AND THE VALLEY OF THE JEEP BEETS 1991
Terminator X & The Valley of the Jeep Beets is the debut album by DJ, Terminator X. The album was released on May 7, 1991 for Def Jam Recordings and was produced by Terminator X and The Bomb Squad.
