The Blastmaster builds on the last BDP album,
Sex and Violence (1992) which he states was “a flop”
(only moving 250,000 units,
in contrast to 1990’s Edutainment which moved 600,000 units),
the possibility of the P.M. Dawn beef slowing down his sales,
and the events that eventually led up to
his highly-celebrated solo debut,
Return of the Boom Bap.
