In the late ‘80s, Detroit rap pioneer Awesome Dre was among the first to stomp onto the national scene from the Midwest. With his mix of political and hardcore he provided a unique perspective and voice during the height of hip-hop's golden era. A voice that would not shy away from controversy by asserting Detroit's place in hip-hop by challenging New York legends Kool Moe Dee and LL Cool J. Out of print since 1989, this release features a download card to the full album and three exclusive bonus cuts. Presented on translucent red vinyl with an OBI-strip.
