In 1993, after five studio albums under the name of Boogie Down Productions, KRS-One released the first album under his solo name, Return of the Boom Bap. Released on Jive Records, the album debuted at #37 on the charts, and prompted hits like the Showbiz-produced "Sound Of Da Police" and the DJ Premier-produced "Outta Here." The Gang Starr beat-king produced seven of the album's 14 tracks, as its remembered as one of The Teacha's finest solo offerings.
Over 16 years later, DJ Premier and KRS-One are said to be at work at Return of the Boom Bip. The album, reportedly coming on Premier's Year Round Record. Also on DJ Premier it said - Also KRS-One and DJ Premier, we’re doing Return of the Boom Bip. Not Boom Bap, Boom Bip. Shout out to Q-Tip who is already on it. Grand Puba and Ice-T who are on it, it’s going to be one of the illest album’s of 2010!
My view on this album is it going to be one of the greatest album of this year. It got one of the best hiphop artist of all time, the teacher of hiphop KRS One and it with the best producer in hiphop history DJ Premier. What a team it will be and they worked together before. So it is going to be a classic. Speaking of Classic they both work together on that with Kanye West, Nas, Rakim which is one of the videos below. To show what they are like working with each other.
