Boogie Down Productions – Poetry / 9mm Goes Bang (B-Boy Records) 7″


KRS-One and his original band Boogie down Productions are amongst a small collective of genre-making, scene building pioneers of this thing we call Hip Hop, and Poetry and 9mm are amongst 2 of their early works of wonder. The 1987 jam ‘Poetry’ famously became the beat basis and was sampled (twice!) in MF Doom’s ‘Doomsday’, of which original copies change hands for £200+. It’s flipped by the earlier monster ‘My 9mm Goes Bang’, which along with tracks by Schooly D and Ice T, can be seen as an early foray into gangster rap, albeit it, from that NYC angle. Original mixes are remastered for 2024, all housed the legendary B-Boy labels and sleeves.
