Edutainment rap that isn't cliche or cringe-inducing. Most attempts fail at spitting socially conscious fables that impart the emcee's personal views on the listener. KRS-One is one of the best proprietors of this, as he isn't religious or holier-than-thou, he spits relatable storytelling and scenarios that aren't preachy and don't talk down to the audience. He's never dumbed-down his writing, yet he keeps it humble.
Key Track: Love's Gonna Get'cha (Material Love)


Knowledge Reigns Supreme Over Nearly Everybody. On this album really deserves the moniker “Teacha”. Sometimes unjustly criticized as being overly ‘preachy’, Edutainment just is what KRS One is. Eloquent, intelligent, conscious – this is classic KRS and classic Hip Hop. If only there was more Edutainment today.
