Iit's funny how sellers try to hype their copies with worn covers and ring wear with terms like "heavy cover wear as is common on this release". Guess what? If the cover of your copy is's busted! There's nothing common about a worn cover...

A true Masterpiece composed by Dale Warren, a classically trained arranger and conductor from Detroit. Soulful grooves effortlessy blending with funky jams, gospel, spoken word and piano solo's. With these flawless arrangements its no wonder this lp has become of the most sampled albums of all time, to name just a few: Naughty by Nature, Jay-Z, Nas, Eric B and Rakim, Jill Scott, Keith Murray, Digable Planets, Leaders of the New School, The RZA, the list goes on and on.

The Sufferings of The Innercity put to wax. Listen and Feel the Pain. This is Poverty's Paradise.
