Boogie Down Productions

Originally composed of rapper KRS One and DJ Scott La Rock. The latter got shot after the release of BDP's debut album "Criminal Minded" in 1987, at about the same time when Ice T and NWA released their debut albums. While "Criminal Minded" was basically about sex and crime, BDP radically changed after Scott's death, becoming the most popular conscious rap group besides Public Enemy. BDP pioneered the fusion of Raggamuffin and Hip hop music, KRS One worked together with rappers such as Mad Lion[?], Channel Live[?] and D Nice. The latter was also part of BDP at a certain time.
