Can you believe it’s been twenty years since “Self-Destruction” came out?

Aside from the activism the song and the Stop the Violence Movement promoted, the video is a picture-perfect fashion time capsule of 1989: door-knocker earrings, full-length furs, Troop jackets, shearlings, kente cloth, and leather hats (hmm, so much of that is back right now). And cameos galore! MC Lyte, D-Nice, Big Daddy Kane, Heavy D
Could something like it happen again today, do you think?
Regardless, it’s a fashionably fitting throwback for Black History Month!
