Stop the Violence Movement, "Self-Destruction"

After two fatal shooting incidents — one of a fan at a Boogie Down Productions and Public Enemy concert and another that took the life of BDP member Scott La Rock — KRS-One formed the Stop the Violence Movement in 1989. He recruited Stetsasonic, Kool Moe Dee, MC Lyte, Doug E. Fresh, Just-Ice, Heavy D and Public Enemy to record the single "Self-Destruction," which called out black-on-black crime and gun violence.
