Poor Righteous Teachers

Part of the growing contingent of Islamic-oriented message rappers, Poor Righteous Teachers formed in Trenton, NJ, when teenage friends Culture Freedom and Wise Intelligent (songwriting credits are listed as S. Phillips and T. Grimes) decided to form a more positive rap group as an alternative to the gangsta style (which they vehemently defend). Joined by DJ and producer Father Shaheed, the group recorded two albums (1990's Holy Intellect and 1991's Pure Poverty) stressing their religious beliefs and philosophy; in spite of sometimes neglecting their music for their message, the albums sold respectably well. 1993's Black Business proved to be their most musically satisfying outing, drawing praise for Wise's ability to use the style and intonation of a reggae/dancehall toaster; however, it was also criticized for its liberal sprinkling of homophobia. New World Order followed in 1996. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi

Poor Righteous Teachers was the first rap cd I purchased for son in 1990...it was an attempt to stimulate an urban black intelligence tinged with the essence of social conciousness . . . m e m o r i e s
Bio definitely misses the point of their influence. I am not righteous, but grew up on the Jersey shore ie: Allah's Paradise. They were spreading the philosophy of the 5% Nation. While not perfect, it tries to give spiritual and family values to many of the young teens/adults that would have been otherwise forgotten and lost to the cruel streets of the NY metro area. Its not a gang, but as all organization s know. It only takes a few bad apples to spoil the bunch.Learn and live those degrees
prt what up
prt rules forever
LIVE AND IN YOUR AREA BO!
sorely missed
