Intelligence and Violence is an album by Inner City Posse, self-released by the group in 1989.

Production[edit]

The recording group consisted of Joseph Bruce and D-Lyrical, who Bruce later recalled barely knowing and only working with him for his karaoke machine.[1]

The entire album was recorded on a karaoke machine in D-Lyrical's basement. [1] Cassettes of the album were handed out for free.[2] The music for the tracks were taken from contemporary groups who included instrumentals on the B-sides of their cassettes.

D-Lyrical represented the Intelligence aspect of the album, while Violent J represented the Violence.[2]
