Released May 2, 1995. Holy Terror Tracklist. 3. Black Rage Lyrics. 10. Black And Strong (Homesick) (Ft. Baba Donn Babatunde & George Clinton) Lyrics.
Containing some of the Poets' most trenchant political and social lyrics, Holy Terror shows the Last Poets, Umar Bin Hassan and Abiodun Oyewole, still as fiery and sharp as ever. Homesick" and "Pelourinho" are descriptions of slavery that are as vivid and riveting as any movie. Black Rage" paints a portrait of urban hell that will chill any listener to the bone. The album is also superbly produced, with a funk sound that supports the lyrics while never overshadowing them.
