I have always wanted to do a Classic Material style post about RBL Posse‘s debut album A Lesson to Be Learned. Funny thing is that while I love that album and played the hell out of it when I was a youngster, I never really learned much about the group even though it seems like there is a bigger story than their hit song “Don’t Give Me No Bammer” (Which was recently and appropriately sampled by Wiz Khalifa). When RBL Posse followed up Lesson to Be Learned two years later in 1994 with Ruthless by Law, I noticed it was only two people on the cover (Down from five). Then later in 1997 with An Eye for an Eye, it was only one person on the cover. I later learned that two of the group’s members, Mr. Cee and Hitman, had died due to gun violence since the group’s debut (R.I.P.) and the lone member was now Black C. And he now wore a patch. As I said, the is a story there.
