5.0 out of 5 stars Question? Why everything you do is Fresh? May 29, 2006
By Mike J
Format:Audio CD
I've attempted to write this review before but it would not post due to it's length, so I'll attempt to be brief, (notice I said attempt). Why would I run out of space writting about a seldom heralded little known BDP album?

Well, first being that I consider this album to be perfect. And I mean perfect in every sense of the word. Sex and Violence is my all time favorite album and I ain't scared to admit it...

But first, let's set the historical context. The Blastmaster was at a very strange time in his life when he made this album. He had just divorced his wife Ms. Melodee. He had split up from the majority of the BDP crew (hence the harsh liner notes for anyone but Kenny Parker and Ill Will to "Stop Frontin'"). He'd been subliminally dissed by X-Clan, (RIP Professor X), Wise Intelligent from Poor Righteous Teachers, and Prince Be of P.M. Dawn. Maybe even a little subliminally by Ice Cube and NWA, (although that one's gotta be read into really deeply). Hell, even D-Nice was talking bad about Kris in the Source. The Heal project had failed. BDP's live album and corresponding video did not move the units that he or his label had desired. Even worse, East Coast Hip Hop seemed to be on a decline, (this album was released prior to Illmatic). What to do? Well, for starters, Krs showed up impromptu at a P.M. Dawn concert and unceremoniously through Prince Be off the stage, ("Damn, Kris IS kinda big"), and then proceeded to rock the house to the tune of "I'm Still Number One". Proof positive KRS was not havin it in '92.

Unfortunately, all of these incidents led to a very confused fan base. Seems everyone had gotten used to KRS' Stop the Violence and Edutainment messages and forgotten Criminal Minded and By All Means Necessary.

5.0 out of 5 stars BDP in full effect January 25, 2001
Format:Audio CD
BDP is a rap group. On this lp there is rap that turns away most who want to hear uninspired songs with just loud bass riffs so their ford escorts and honda civics can rattle as they drive. As far as I am concerned they can "Back their thing" up into a lake with Slim Shady and Dre in the trunk.
On this album, BDP forgoes the Exhibit "skit" type rap album and just drops it with, to quote Q-Tip, " beats that is hard, beats that is funky, beats that get you hooked just like a crack head junky."
And now BDP does that rarest of things - two albums in a row with no reference to hanging out smoking blunts and getting skins from b*tc*es.
Perhaps there wasn't a "single" on this album like Material Love or Criminal Minded. So be it. This album I enjoy more than Edutainment. No disrespect to Edutainment, perhaps BDP's 9th Symphony, but this is rap at its finest. Hard beats and KRS One's intellectual utterly superior lyrics and style.
Give this one a chance before you let a few trifling reviews turn you away from it. You will not regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ahead of its Time September 18, 2003
Format:Audio CD
KRS 1 has always been light years ahead of the rap game, and the Sex and Violence CD is just one more item of proof for that statement. Rappers like Emenem and Rakim have recieved an abundance of well deserved credit for their lyrical witticism. KRS-1, however, takes lyrical wit to another level by using his tounge twisting talent to speak on more complicating issues such as the ethnic history of drug dealers, the hipocrisy of 5% NOI rappers, The IRS as the true pimps of the world and more.
The tragedy of this CD and KRS has nothing to do with KRS's tendency to "preach" but rather with the immaturity and low level gratuities of a rap industry that has gone mainstream. In fact, THIS is exactly what this CD is all about. It may very well be that KRS will sadly go under recognized by an industry that he helped revolutionized. But I believe that will only be temporary. If hip-hop ever grows up and evolves beyond thugs, drugs and adolescent narcisstic content, then it may very well reflect on artists like KRS 1 and give him the props he deserved since his introduction to the rap game.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Produced and Lyrical BDP Album Ever July 25, 2008
Format:Audio CD
SEX AND VIOLENCE, Although commerically his worst selling album of all the BDP albums, lyrically and production wise, is his best as he ridded the rap world of X-Clan, Poor Righteous Teachers and the soft as mallow pie PM Dawn on the singles "We In There" and "Build and Destroy". The 12" single remix of the "We In There" single includes a track on the other side called "Feel The Vibe, Feel the Beat" where he basically massacres that track and ended PM Dawn's and his former homey D-Nice's career.

This had to be the first KRS-ONE lp that I could actually listen to the tracks more than I could just the lyrics. KRS-ONE was going through a lot personally before this album, the divorce from his wife Ms Melodie, the beef with former homie D-Nice, and the fact that east coast rap at that time in 1992 had taken a back seat to West Coast Rap being dominated by NWA, ICECUBE, Ice-T, Too Short, Snoop, D.O.C., Geto Boys, Compton's Most Wanted, DJ Quik. West Coast rap had become the rage and the afro-centric, edutainment rap that the KRS's, the Rakims, the Public Enemy's, the Queen Latifah's, Jungle Brothers and Tribes of the East had continue to build on top of the foundation already laid down, had started to crumble. East Coast rap was being largely ignored by Yo MTV Raps, The Video Jukebox at the time, the two largest video players of rap videos. Unfortunately, this album like a poster said earlier came two years before Illmatic started the resurgence of East Coast rap again but lyrically was one of the better albums hands downs that was released that year.
