"Self Destruction," The Stop the Violence Movement
With Black-on-Black crime running rampant, KRS-One assembled a dream team of spitters to come together on the posse cut "Self Destruction." Produced by D-Nice, the put-down-the-guns anthem included Kool Moe Dee, Heavy D, Boogie Down Productions, Stetsasonic, MC Lyte, Public Enemy and a few other wordsmiths.
Released in 1990, KRS came up with the idea after a young fan was killed at a fight during one of his shows with P.E. Bigger than just the song, The Stop the Violence movement was a coalition of artists working together in the community to bring about peace.
