I always thought Premier did the whole album, but just having a poke around on Wikipedia and apparently KRS produced some of my favourite tracks himself, and Showbiz did Sound of Da Police. Anyway, it still ticks lots of Classic Album boxes for me - (almost) single producer so a nice cohesive sound, right amount of tracks, no skits, (almost) no guest spots. Just feels really definite
There’s a track or two that I might skip nowadays (I can’t sit through Sound of da Police anymore) but on the whole it’s aged really well IMO and it just a great front to back listen.
KRS-One is funny one for me. On that podcast I posted they discuss his ‘standing’ and how he probably isn’t in a lot of peoples top 5, or even 10, and why that might be. I pretty much gave up on him after I Got Next. There’s an interesting bit on the Stretch and Bobbito documentary where he’s freestyling about a British massacre somewhere and it transpires that he had basically made it up, but he speaks with such authority that you just take it as gospel. Same with the Westwood spat. This guy is The Teacher - he’s always correct! But then I started realising he often spoke complete shit. And that’s when I gave up on him.
