Excerpt from "My Philosophy", Boogie Down Productions, Jive/RCA 1988

For "My Philosophy" David Blandy is bringing together a selection of
his works from the past 8 years which explore the possiblility of

Blandy seeks answers to life's questions from Ben E. King, Bruce Lee,
KRS-One and David Carradine. The program will include "Samurai
