There wasn’t much Gangsta Rap or Street Hip Hop coming out of New York City in 1989. Artists like Biggie Smalls and Wu-Tang Clan hadn’t made their way on the scene yet. Schoolly D who is considered the first Gangsta Rapper was out of Philly, and the closest thing in New York was KRS-ONE who by then was moving in a more conscious direction with his music. If Rap fans wanted some hardcore shit, they had to go Down South or on the West Coast to get it.
