...well, i believe all'a his cds are under appreciated, but thats jus me.

i thought this was pure genius when it first dropped and time has done nothing to change that opinion.

i found a crate of my ol' school cassette tapes yesterday and i been playin ER'THANG... all'a yo yo's tapes, salt n pepa's stuff... wc and the maad circle, audio two's first two tapes... schooly d, 3 times dope, del... ER'BODY! ...even isis (of xclan) and harmony (from the bdp camp)...

ya know, most ol school hip hop is only good for reminiscing nowadays... the lyrics and production were good for the day, but dont always hold up under the 'modern standards'...

but edutainment's different. this remains nearly as fresh today as it first did when i got it. might be brotha parkers 3rd or 4th best album of all'a em: criminal minded, ghetto music, edutainment, then live/hardcore/worldwide...

i could put this on around family gatherings, just to educate the young'uns on what 'real' hip hop is about.

im'a have this on cd before the weekend's out...

Format: Audio CD
With this 1990 release, Boogie Down Productions was steamrolling their way to legendary status. This was back when BDP dropped fresh material every year from '87 (Criminal Minded) until '92 (Sex & Violence), so that's not necessarily as easy as it may sound. With classic tracks like "Love's Gonna Get 'Cha", "Ya Strugglin' ", "House Ni***s", "100 Guns" (Ja Rule bit this joint), "Beef", and "Blackman In Effect", you know that the album is, at the very least, doper than most other 1990 hip hop releases. But there are solid tracks laced throughout the album and there are no fillers. Personally, I can't imagine why anyone would give this album less than 5 stars, but that's just me. This album is just as fresh now as it was 17 (oh my god, 17 years?!!!) years ago.

As far as flaws, I can't think of any. Sure, KRS gets political, so obviously it's going to rub some people the wrong way (like most political stances do), but I loved it and saw nothing wrong with it. The beats are strictly b-boy styled boom bap vibes and nothing less. If you ain't feelin' that, then you may be browsing the wrong genre for your music.

Edutainment is just that -- educational entertainment. There isn't a beat that KRS One can't get busy on and he entertains the masses with knowledge instead of dreams of material prosperity. Hip hop heads all around the world (myself included) recognize him as one of the illest to ever stand in front of a microphone. The production is on point, so what more could you ask for? I recommend grabbing this album if you cross paths with it.

Standout Tracks: The Homeless, Ya Strugglin' feat. Kwame Toure, Beef (My Favorite), Ya Know The Rules, Love's Gonna Get 'Cha (Material Love), House Ni***s, Blackman In Effect, Original Lyrics feat. Special K, and 100 Guns

Obviously not but it sounds like on some Tracks he is live.He goes into some great stories about everything,there are a number of classics.The beats are pretty cool but KRS-One is killing all songs on here.This album must be consumed purely awesome beats

Straightened hair may be temporary, but KRS-One's influence on Hiphop is permanent. And this CD is just one of the reasons why. The beats and music are slammin' and the lyrics are boombastic-fantastic. It gets better and better everytime I spin it. I've heard it said that KRS is too political, or too "conscious", or all about his philosophy, but how is that even a complaint? I like music that rocks me, or makes me want to dance, or drops the funky beatdown like James Brown with a badge, but that is merely the minimum requirement. It has to do all that AND make me think, otherwise, why bother? If I wanted music to go braindead to, I'd just tune into top 40 radio and put my head under a truck tire. If you want more from your music than something to eat up your time while the world floats past you, BUY THIS ALBUM, then check out the rest of KRS's incredible catalog. Peace.

This is one of the sickest, and most appropriately titled, albums ever in any genre. KRS-One lays down his manifesto immediately on "Blackman in Effect" and doesn't let up one ounce on gems such as "Beef" "Edutainment" House Niggas" "Ya Know the Rules" etc etc etc. In Fact, the only tracks I don't like on this record are "Love's Gonna Getcha" and "30 Cops or More". Every other track on this is slammin' in my humble opinion. Way back in the day I would play this constantly along with "By Any Means" and "Ghetto Music"

I've been a BDP&(KRS)since the beginning I was in middle school when CRIMINAL MINDED dropped.Personally "By all means necessary" was my favorite for long time. I remember when I got EDUTAINMENT christmas 1990...I thought it was true brilliance with songs like "BEEF" and "BREATH CONTROL 2". But it hasn't been 'til recently that i've changed my opinion...THIS IS THE BEST BDP ALBUM everything just came together on this one ..not to say By all means...or criminal isn't just as good, but EDUTAINMENT is like the title claims EDUCATION & ENTERTAINMENT...you couldn't ask for anything more...its also the most clever name for an album that i've ever heard..I think it took for me to get older to really realize how Near Perfect this album is...and probably is the first "CONCEPT ALBUM" in hip hop. THIS ALBUM IS A MUST FOR ANY KID WHO WANTS TO CHECK OUT SOME "OLD SCHOOL" HIP HOP WITH SOME SUBSTANCE IN IT..THAT'S ENTERTAINING ALSO...EASILY A TOP 5 HIP HOP ALBUM OF ALL TIMES..NO EXAGGERATION!!!
