#30thAnniversary – Poor Righteous Teachers “Black Business”

Poor Righteous Teachers discography definitely falls into the underrated category. Mostly acclaimed by critics, the great reception of every project sadly didn’t transfer into album sales, like the forgotten “Pure Poverty” and this third LP released on Profile Records titled “Black Business”. The production, split between PRT and Tony D (RIP), who produced the first two albums, is top tier for 1993. On the mic, Wise Intelligent is a strong emcee who delivers conscious afrocentric lyrics with a precise flow, and he doesn’t miss a step on this one. In retrospect, this might be the most consistent project over the four LP’s released in their seven year run from 1989 to 1996, so do yourself a favor, and take a listen!
