Every Thursday we like to take it back and give you a Culture Classic. A clip from a film/TV show or a music video from back in the day that reps The Culture to the fullest!
After the death of group member Scott La Rock and a young fan was killed at a 1987 Boogie Down Productions and Public Enemy show, KRS-One formed the Stop the Violence Movement in hopes of encouraging the hip-hop community to end the violence being committed among themselves. He assembled many of the biggest East Coast rappers from Heavy D to Public Enemy and with production from D-Nice and The Bomb Squad the chart-topping “Self-Destruction” was created. The song is a true hip-hop classic that reps the culture. And all proceeds from the project went to the National Urban League.
