About 360 Degrees of Power

360 Degrees of Power is the only album by female emcee, author, and activist Sister Souljah, which was released in 1992 on Epic/SME Records. The album was met with criticism, not only for its performances—most of which were angry spoken-word tirades that Souljah screamed rather than traditional hip-hop rhymes—but also because of its controversial lyrics. The two singles and music videos, "The Hate that Hate Produced" and "The Final Solution: Slavery's Back in Effect," were banned by MTV because of their inflammatory language and imagery. The album reached #72 on the Top R&B/Hip Hop album chart and sold only 27,000 copies. Guest appearances were made by Chuck D ("State of Accommodation: Why Aren't You Angry") and Ice Cube ("Killing Me Softly: Deadly Code of Silence"). One track, "Wild Buck Beer," a fictional commercial for a malt liquor, features an appearance by an anonymous artist under the moniker MC Just Want to Get Paid.
