Return of the Boom Bap was KRS-One’s first official solo album, released in 1993 on Jive Records. It peaked on the Billboard 200 charts at position 37 on October 16, 1993.
In 1998, the album was selected as one of The Source’s 100 Best Rap Albums. The record was originally rated 4 mics in The Source in 1993. Unlike the majority of the Boogie Down Productions LP’s, KRS here takes a step back from the production duties and invites rising underground stars DJ Premier, Showbiz and Kid Capri to handle the beats in addition to his four contributions.
