WATCH: Various Artists "Self Destruction" (1989)
SPEECH SAMPLED: "Message To the Grass Roots"
COMPLEX SAYS: After a fan was killed at his concert and fellow BDP member Scott La Rock was fatally shot, KRS-One began the Stop The Violence Movement in response to the incredible amount of violence in the black community. The movement birthed the epic posse cut "Self Destruction," featuring everyone from Kool Moe Dee to MC Lyte, and even Public Enemy. The song also features one of the most fitting Malcolm samples.
