Today In Hip Hop History: BDP's 'Edutainment' LP Dropped 31 Years Ago

News Exclusives Produced primarily by the Blastmaster KRS himself along with the Human 808 D-Nice, Edutainment is arguably one of BDPs best albums before KRS began to venture into solo projects. The title was definitive of its contents; education through the entertainment of Hip-Hop music. This album was also the most populated in terms of members of Boogie Down Productions, with appearances from Ms. Melodie, her sister Harmony, Jamal Ski, D-Nice, Willie Dee, Mc Boo, and Kris brother Kenny Parker. Prior to this, BDP only consisted of D-Nice, KRS, and the late DJ Scott La Rock.

Joints like the premier single Love Is Gonna Getcha, Breath Control II, and Blackman In Effect not only showed Kris cultural and political knowledge, but it magnified his lyrical ability to adapt to any subject. 100 Guns, which was remade by Ja Rule and Fat Joe during their beef with 50 Cent, further solidified the albums street cred. From Beef(healthy eating) to 30 Cops Or More(police brutality), Edutainment carried the appropriate title for what was in store for its listeners. Supreme salute to KRS, the whole BDP crew from that era, and the entire BX. Peace! Advertisement
