Career

PRT debuted in 1989 with the release of the single „Time to Say Peace“ b/w „Butt Naked Booty Bless“. The trio released their first album, Holy Intellect, in 1990, amidst a number of similarly pro-Black, Islam-inspired albums such as Public Enemy’s Fear of a Black Planet, X-Clan’s To the East, Blackwards and Brand Nubian’s One For All. [1] While not as commercially successful as these albums, Holy Intellect received critical acclaim, and spawned the group’s only major radio hit, „Rock Dis Funky Joint“. PRT returned in 1991 with their second album, Pure Poverty. The album was not as commercially successful than their debut, and was not as acclaimed. The lead single „Shakiyla (JRH)“, became a minor rap hit that year. Their third, and possibly most successful release to date, Black Business, was released in 1993.
