The Best of Kurtis Blow

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
While he made many groundbreaking singles, Kurtis Blow was never a consistent album artist, making this best-of collection his definitive artistic statement. Throughout the early '80s, Blow helped define what rap could do, and these tracks confirm his status as one of hip-hop's legendary acts.
