Return of the Boom Bap
's first official solo album, released in 1993 on the Jive Records
label. It peaked on the Billboard 200 charts at position 37 on October 16, 1993. In 1998
, the album was selected as one of The Source's 100 Best Rap Albums. The record was originally rated 4 mics in The Source in 1993.
Unlike the majority of the Boogie Down Productions
LP's, KRS here takes a step back from the production duties and invites rising underground stars DJ Premier
and Kid Capri
to handle the beats in addition to his four contributions. The track "Black Cop" was originally released as a 12" single and a track for the CB4
movie soundtrack, thus labeled as a B.D.P. track. This release says the song is produced by Pal Joey (who worked closely with Kris on the last two B.D.P. albums) and KRS-One. Wille D from Boogie Down Productions also makes an uncredited cameo as he join Kris on the mic as a guest rapper on "Slap Them Up". It's also very likely DJ Kenny Parker
performs uncredited scratches and cuts on a few songs.
