Boogie Down Productions is a hip hop group. It was originally composed of KRS-One, D Nice, and DJ Scott La Rock. DJ Scott La Rock was murdered on August 27, 1987, after the release of BDP's debut album Criminal Minded. The name of the group, "Boogie Down", derives from the alternative name for The Bronx section of New York City.
While the origins of Hip-Hop are believed to be from The Bronx, Rival Hip-Hop Collective Juice Crew claimed in the song The Bridge that Hip-Hop was directly a result of artists originating from QueensBridge. Boogie Down and KRS retorted angrily with songs like The Bridge Is Over and South Bronx which started one of the first notable Hip-Hop wars as MC Shan, Marley Marl and Roxanne Shante all released songs featuring verses personally attacking KRS and Scott La Rock. The Bridge Wars however were only short-lived and after the death of Scott La Rock prior to the groups second album, KRS began to concentrate on conscious Rap.
