Re-Edutainment, the upcoming debut EP from Kyle Rapps, is the New Jersey native’s own take on Edutainment, the highly regarded Boogie Down Productions classic released over 20 years ago. Bringing his own lyrical and thematic touches to this eight-track EP, Kyle enlisted the production efforts of Kev Brown for the entire project. Brown produced a reinterpretation of his own; he researched and only used the dusty loops, chops, and breaks that were sampled on the BDP original. Fittingly, the EP features KRS-One, on “Rent Remix,” in addition to Cali crew U-N-I, and Brooklyn’s own Joell Ortiz, who is one-fourth of the recently Shady Records-signed group Slaughterhouse, and is also featured on the EP’s first single, “Hard Knock Children.”
