1988/89 was such a great time for hip-hop,soul and r&b music. It saddens me how far those genres have sunk and fallen off. KRS was such a huge influence on myself and my inner circle!!!!!!

The teacher at his finest. This song explains so much about African history. This is the lesson all should learn, including the fact that everyone on this planet originated from Africa. Why is because the first man came from and was born in Africa.

Uh, the Israelites were Jewish. Maybe their skin was darker back in their Egyptian times though and maybe Abraham was more blackish. We can't possibly know that for certain though.
