b. Keith Rose, USA. As the Rake this obscure old school rapper released ‘Street Justice’ on Profile Records in the early 80s, a revenge narrative which concerned itself with the lack of justice visited on two criminals who raped the protagonist’s wife. It was written by Blatt and Gottlieb, two professional songwriters better known for their work with the Four Tops.
