Liner Note Author: KRS-One.
Back in 1988, KRS-One founded the Stop the Violence Movement to address the violence that was plaguing parts of the hip-hop world at the time. Sadly, that violence only escalated -- and in the mid-'90s, things became downright tragic with the well-publicized East Coast/West Coast feud that involved the Notorious B.I.G., Sean "Puff Daddy" Combs, and Bad Boy Entertainment on one side and Tupac Shakur, Death Row Records, and the infamous Suge Knight on the other. Hip-hop has always had feuds -- LL Cool J versus Kool Moe Dee, the Juice Crew versus Boogie Down Productions -- but when Biggie and 2Pac were both killed in drive-by shootings, the East Coast/West Coast rivalry became more than a war of words; it became a war of actual bullets. Hip-hop's many feuds are the focus of the documentary Beef, and this soundtrack often captures the intense bitterness that has characterized some of them. The soundtrack opens on an extremely bitter note with "No Vaseline," Ice Cube's scathing 1991 attack on Eazy-E and others he knew from N.W.A -- and the CD maintains a harsh, angry tone with other previously released songs (including N.W.A's "Fuck tha Police") and new material by, among others, KRS, Jayo Felony, and Poverty (a seriously talented white MC from Portland, OR). Not all of the tunes are actually about feuds among rappers; "Fuck tha Police" is a commentary on police brutality. However, those feuds are a recurring theme, and KRS engages in a little feuding of his own when he gives St. Louis pop-rapper Nelly a serious tongue-lashing on "You Don't Really Want It." Of course, KRS has long had a sense of what is and isn't crossing the line; he understands that while verbal aggression is one thing, committing actual violence against fellow MCs is totally unacceptable. Sadly, he fears that some rappers don't understand that, which is one of the reasons why Beef desperately needed to be made. Not everything on this soundtrack is great; some of the tunes are excellent, while others are merely competent. But at its best, the Beef soundtrack sheds some light on a disheartening hip-hop crisis that has stubbornly refused to go away. ~ Alex Henderson

Daredevil Records use The Planet app powered by Shopify to neutralize your shipping emissions and removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Daredevil Records has committed to donating the most amount of money possible from your order to offset C02 emissions.  

This includes funding innovative solutions such as direct air capture and mineralization, and a small portion of nature-based carbon removal.

These funds companies such as 44.01, Carbofex, CarbonBuilt, CarbonCure, Charm Industrial, Climeworks, DroneSeed, Grassroots Carbon, Heirloom Carbon, Loam, Noya, Pachama, Planetary, Remora, Running Tide, and Sustaera.

Carbon Removal Process

Carbon removal is the process of capturing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and then storing it.

For example, if a truck or a plane that delivers your shipment releases 1 kg of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere, and you are subscribed to the Planet app, then Shopify ensures that 1kg of CO2 is also sucked from the atmosphere and stored away using solutions and technologies in Shopify Sustainability Fund.

There is a fast-growing and evolving sector with many carbon removal technologies in different stages of development. These technologies include nature-based solutions, such as reforestation and soil carbon sequestration and more high-tech solutions, such as direct air capture and mineralization.

How Shipping Emissions Are Calculated

The Planet app combines data from our store with industry data and peer-reviewed models to estimate how much CO2 your shipments release into the environment. Because the Planet app makes sure that CO2 shipping emissions are removed entirely, all values that are used in the data models are rounded up.

Review the following table to learn more about the which data is used to determine shipping emissions:


Primary value

If primary value isn't available


Weight of the shipment

An average shipment weight


Distance traveled according to the tracking data

Straight-line distance between the origin and destination address, multiplied by an uncertainty factor of 1.5

Type of transportation

Truck or plane carbon emissions, determined by speed and distance

Truck emissions

To estimate your emissions, the Planet app uses order tracking data associated with the tracking number assigned to the shipment. If the tracking number isn’t available or the shipping carrier isn’t supported, then the Planet app multiplies the estimated emissions by an uncertainty factor of 1.5. The uncertainty factor helps make sure that all your emissions are removed. If any data is inconsistent or missing, then the Planet app uses a reasonable maximum value instead.

For example, suppose that you ship a package from Boston to New York. The straight-line distance is 305.94 km, but the shortest road route is around 350 km. If tracking data is available, then the Planet app uses the exact distance traveled.

However, if no tracking data is provided, then 305.94 km is used in the base calculation, and the resulting emissions would be multiplied by 1.5. This calculation accounts for variations in the route, such as distances traveled from post offices and distribution centers, and the route taken by the courier to deliver the package to your customer's door.

Considerations for using the Planet app

Review the following considerations for the Carbon Neutral Shipping Planet app:

  • The models and estimates aren’t exact, but the Planet app overestimates your emissions to make sure that they’re entirely removed. 
  • The Planet app removes only carbon (CO2) emissions that account for 95% of the climate impact from burning fossil fuels for transportation. Other emissions such as CH4, N2O, and GHG aren’t removed.
  • Orders that are shipped by sea transportation (we do not ship any orders by sea) don't generate the data required to accurately calculate emissions. Instead, industry-accepted alternative methods are used to calculate emissions.
  • The Planet app currently focuses on addressing emissions from shipping-related transportation.
