If Criminal Minded confirmed KRS-One’s street credentials and By All Means Necessary proved the depth of his self-determination, then Ghetto Music: The Blueprint of Hip-Hop is where he truly became a teacher and a hip-hop elder statesman—all by the tender age of 24. His style is fueled by contradiction. “You Must Learn” is a history lesson disguised as a fight song; “World Peace” posits that pacifism is the greatest form of combat; “Who Protects Us from You?” is anti-police anthem that engages the police as its audience. KRS repeatedly alludes to Jamaican music, an appreciation that comes to the fore on “Jah Rules” and “Bo! Bo! Bo!.”
