I seen this shit done for Gangstarr, Eric B & Rakim etc, so i thought id do it for BDP. A lot of people seem to only know/remember BDP for their fist two albums, 'Criminal Minded, and 'By All Means Nesseccary', but their whole catalogue is dope. I dont have 'Edutainment' so i cant comment on that, but i think 'Ghetto Music', and 'Sex & Violence' are seriously dope and overlooked hip-hop gems.

I know KRS's teachings got to be too much for some on latter albums, but its an important element to these albums. These all stand the test of time today, and shows that BDP has one of the dopest catologues of the golden era.

This is kind of hard to pick, but fuck it ill go with 'By All Means Nesseccary'.

By All Means Necessary, that album was fucking years ahead of its time, lyrically and musically.

I agree, their whole catalogue is dope. Edutainment, though, is a bit overlonged and too self-righteous, but it had it's gems, like "Love's Gonna Getcha (Material Love)"... an all-time classic.

Sex & violence is seriously underrated. All their shit is ill, but I think Criminal Minded is my favorite.
