I noticed a lot of "none of the above" picks in the multi choice thread for this section. So who so you think should be credited? Why? And is it more than one person or group?

I lean towards KRS-One, although a strong case can also be made for Chuck D.

The reason I picked Kris is because Criminal Minded came out before Nation Of Millions, but both men could easily be credited as they both spearheaded concious rap.

I think it was Melle Mel with "The Message" that got everyone's attention.

And that dropped in 1982. This predates any work by the previously mentioned artists.

I would say they were valid voices as well.
