The seminal debut album (originally released in 1970 on the Douglas label) reached the United States top 10 album charts...
If rap music could be traced to one source point, this exceptional album would be it, without a question... featuring the classic "When The Revolution Comes"
The Last Poets stands as the true originator of hip-hop emceeing. With withering attacks on everything from racists to the American government even the bourgeoisie,
their spoken-word albums preceded politically laced projects such as Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On" and foreshadowed the work of hard-hitting hip-hop groups such as Public Enemy.
This record is an important moment in black American cultural history.
