Self Destruction

The Stop the Violence Movement was formed by rapper KRS-One; during a Boogie Down Productions and Public Enemy concert, a young fan was killed in a fight; galvanised into action, KRS-One founded the Stop the Violence Movement. 

Comprised of some of the biggest stars in contemporary East Coast hip-hop, the movement released a single in 1989 with all proceeds going to the National Urban League

…and it still resonates today, especially with what’s happening in London town right now
