Ignore the misleading title. You'll know this CD release better as Criminal Minded, the classic album from KRS-One and Scott La Rock. In 1985, a young and homeless Lawrence Krsna Parker met social worker Scott Sterling at a Bronx shelter. They hooked up with (uncredited) producer Ced Gee to cut "South Bronx" and "The Bridge Is Over," monumental records which toppled the Queens-based Juice Crew and forever cemented the Bronx's place in the history of hip-hop. These tracks, along with the sublime "Poetry" and the shocking "9mm Goes Bang," formed the basis of Criminal Minded. As the record took off, Scott La Rock was killed in a street-side shooting while coming to the aid of rapper D-Nice. From the now out-of-print compilation, The Man and His Music, this CD adds a DJ Red Alert megamix, circa late '80s, and the early tracks, "Advance" and "D-Nice Rocks the House." Also included is the rare early single "Say No Brother." Essential. --Jeff Chang
