How are these listed as 1989 when the labels on the records clearly state 1988?

MC Lyte brings the dopiest verse for sure. I wonder how many artist were asked to be involved but turned it down.
Also like Phil said it never took off due in part to the average backing track and chorus but there wasn't a radio edit and radio sure as hell wasn't going to play a single edit that was 5:28 long.
I wish Hank had more input into this.
