* Poor Righteous Teachers *

(Culture Freedom, Wise Intelligent, Father Sha)

Poor Righteous Teachers are one of my top 5 hip hop groups of all time......They are known as Pro Black "conscious" Hip Hop artists who identify with The Nation of Gods and Earths (known as the 5%, Five Percenters, or the Five Percent Nation of Islam).
The trio released their first album, Holy Intellect, in 1990, spawning their only major radio hit, "Rock Dis Funky Joint". This album was followed by Pure Poverty the following year. Their follow-up and most successful release to date has been 1993's Black Business, which drew criticism for alleged homophobia. Their fourth release was The New World Order, which was my personal favorite PRT album . Wise Intelligent released a solo CD titled "Killing U For Fun" in 1995. In 2005, Wise Intelligent will release a second solo CD titled "The Talented Timothy Taylor." PRT are on track to release new material in late 2006.
