A true classic, Criminal Minded was included in Vibe Magazines 100 Essential Albums of the 20th century. KRS-ONEs combination of street slang and Websters dictionary knowledge backed by Scott La Rocks hard hitting, minimal beats helped set this album apart when it was originally released in 1986. With this now-classic debut album, BDPs hardcore stylings helped to redefine the New York rap music scene. Criminal Minded elevated the standards and proved that rap could be a dynamic and consciousness-raising medium. Since its release, KRS-ONE has gone on to become one of the most prolific and critically-acclaimed artists in Hip Hop history.
