Product Details

Summary

New York in the 1980's: Crack cocaine, Reaganomics, The Cold War, The Iran-Contra scandal, U.S. Recession, Wall Street greed and collapse, the explosion of graffiti and break-dancing, the advancement of Hip Hop into the consciousness of America. The decade was a nefarious era, the city landscaped in political turmoil and economic crisis. But out of this wreckage came the development of what had been dismissed as a fad into a thriving industry called Hip Hop, a creative juggernaut which went on to change the world. Prodigy, Big Twins and Un Pacino were raised in this era. Born in the late 70's, they grew up in a culture steeped in controversy and contradiction. Each walked a path through the rotted streets, by any means necessary. Violence, poverty, drugs and indulgence were part and parcel. This project harkens back to this epoch through the frontline survivors themselves.

Likewise, the contributing producers draw exclusively from the records that were garnered in that fundamentally diametric period. Welcome to "Product of the 80s"

Prior to his current incarceration, Prodigy made a home at Dirt Class Studios in Brooklyn. Often he arrived alone and left alone. No entourage, no groupies, no crew. This left the emphasis on Prodigy, the man and his words. Dirt Class became his sanctuary where he could productively write and record without distraction. The duo of Joey and Bravo (better known as Sid Roams) hosted these sessions and provided the bulk of the soundtrack. The chemistry was evident and the result was a copious amount of new material from Prodigy. The result of this effort is uncut and undiluted "Product of the 80s".

Comment: this album is great. the production is really really good.i kind of agree with critics saying that p talks about the same stuff and if his production in his last 4 albums wasent as good as it was that he wouldent be where he is now. BUT its still dope as fuck lol.he does what he does and he does it well. I really recommend this.

Comment: P is undoubtedly in the top 3 emcees of this generation. Nobody has his versatility to rap from gritty street tracks, to social issues, to club bangers. Hold your head up son. Free P!!!
