Categories: ,

Originally released in the fall of 1993 Return of the Boom Bap is KRS-One‘s first official solo album. The album is pure 90’s Hip-Hop filled with KRS-One’s trademark conscious raps and storytelling with boom bap beats from the man himself, DJ Premier, Showbiz, and Kid Capri. The album kicks off with a Preemo trademark intro leading into “Outta Here”, a tale about coming up in the 80s with a message to emcees not staying true to their roots. Throughout the album KRS-One tackles corrupt police, fake emcees, religion and provides some comical relief on “I Can’t Wake Up” where he dreams about being a blunt passed around by a who’s who of 90s emcees and Bill Clinton! The album was selected as one of The Source’s 100 Best Rap Albums and received a 4 four mics rating in The Source in 1993. Includes the bonus freestyle track “Hip-Hop vs Rap” that was on the original “Sound of Da Police” 12-inch.
