The Diamond In The Rough: The KRS-One Session

Rap is something you do; Hip Hop is something you live..

On March 3rd, 1987, one of Hip Hop's most influential & important albums was released. Criminal Minded was the debut album from Boogie Down Productions.

The album heavily sampled records from James Brown and AC/DC and also had a dancehall reggae influence. The album is also credited with providing a prototype for East Coast gangsta rap. Voted a 5 star album by All Music, Rolling Stone; as well as the coveted 5 mic rating from The Source; Criminal Minded is indeed a classic.

psychology celebrates the silver anniversary of Criminal Minded with an homage to Boogie Down Productions & KRS-One with The Diamond In The Rough: The KRS-One Session; debuting tonight (midnight) on the airwaves of K103.
