By All Means Necessary

By All Means Necessary

In its history Hip Hop has had a handful of stand-out years. And for many true fans there is little debate that 1988 was the true 'Golden Era'. Countless classic albums came out that year and By Any Means Necessary ranks high atop that list.

Artist: Boogie Down Productions

Genre: Hip Hop

Label: Music On Vinyl

Release date:

Following the fatal shooting of the groups DJ / Producer Scott La Rock in 1987, KRS One was determined to continue Boogie Down Productions despite the tragedy. Taking the group in a slightly different direction, adopting the moniker 'Teacher' and taking on social issues, KRS crafted an album that to this day still sounds fresh and exciting. From the moment the album starts with the infectious saxophone sample on "My Philosophy" or the Reggae influenced "Stop The Violence" to the straight up braggadocios "I'm Still #1", By Any Means Necessary proves why it's one of the most important and classic albums ever recorded.
