A classic Hip Hop album on the instrumental tip! All ten original "Criminal Minded" cuts appear in their entirety as instrumentals with incredibly dense musical textures. Although, the "Hot Club Version" may be devoid of KRS-One's booming voice and enlightening street stories, his presence is felt throughout as the co-producer, alongside DJ Scott La Rock, and Ced Gee of the UltraMagnetic MC's. The tracks are perfect for young MC's in training to rap over, and as a tool for aspiring producers and DJs to sample and cut. This sound was so influential on Club / DJ culture worldwide and is guaranteed to rock any party, radio show or simply any listener. This is more than just a novelty item, This is Hip Hop history!
