FEATURING THE CLASSIC HIP HOP TRACKS ''SOUND OF DA POLICE'' AND ''P'' IS STILL FREE''
Return of the Boom Bap is KRS-One's first official solo album, released in 1993. It peaked on the Billboard 200 charts at position 37 and the album has sold over 300,000 copies.
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, Showbiz and Kid Capri to handle the beats in addition to his four contributions. The track "P Is Still Free" appeared on the Menace to Society Original Soundtrack [MOVATM152] labeled as a B.D.P. track. The track "Black Cop" was originally released as a 12" single and a track for the CB4 movie soundtrack, thus also labeled as a B.D.P. track.
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.
