1988 was a pivotal year for me. I turned 20 that year, and it was also the year that I feel in love with Hip Hop, after hearing PE's 'Rebel without a Pause'. It was also the year that that this, BDK debut LP, was released onto a eager public. We had already been primed as to the lyrical prowess of this Brooklynite, due to the single release of 'Raw'. This is a classic release from the golden age, with only one bad track 'The Day You're Mine', which set the tone for the battle that Kane had with himself, in terms of being a battle type MC, or a Love God.
Despite being 20 years old, this hasn't aged a bit. Personnel favorites are, well to be honest, like my children, I find it hard to pick out one.
One CD that to my mind should be in any Hip Hop lovers' collection.
