Not sure about that hook, but Kris is getting in that ass on the verses. Sucka emcees duck! LISTEN: KRS-One – “Show Shocked” (MP3) KRS-One – “Show Shocked” (MP3)
The story on the above photo is actually when Kris came to HipHopSite to promote his Keep Right album. Dude in the hat is who we like to call “The Other Paul Rosenberg” – a local fitness trainer that is pretty much responsible for whipping the entire Las Vegas deejay community in to shape. The [cont.]
Do you listen to Poetical Prophets, Brick City Kids, Original Flavor, Ricky D, Kid Wizard Rakim, Simply II Positive, or Darkman X? You probably do, but just don’t know it yet. A blog called Onetwann digs into the archives and unearths a treasure trove of lost pre-major label demos from the likes of Jay-Z, Slick [cont.]
In a recent report by AllHipHop, it was revealed that KRS-One is working on a new six-track EP called Back To The L.A.B. (Lyrical Ass Beating). The EP will focus on calling out emcees that have attacked him or that he has had beef with over the last several years, and will feature production from [cont.]
KRS speaks on the importance of hip-hop culture in 2010, continues to blast the hip-hop museum, and Guru’s passing. Recorded at SOB’s on 4.20.10. Big up to Grandgood.Com.
The Temple Of Hip-Hop says, in regards to the above video: KRS1 speaks on behalf of the Hip Hop Pioneers (Afrika Bambaataa/Zulu nation and DJ,Kool Herc plus others) the reason why they are boycotting the National Museum of Hip Hop. April 6th 2010…..Its more than just recognition. Its about, housing, insurance, legal aid, as if [cont.]
New interview with Preemo and FADER TV about his upcoming project with KRS-One and his past projects. Check it out above.
DJ Premier recently stated in an interview with 944 / The Examiner that he will re-team with KRS-One for a new album called Return of The Boom Bip (that’s “BIP”, not “BAP”), as well as his other plans for 2010: Year Round Records is my label for 5 years strong. We have a NYG’z album [cont.]
Not sure where this one is coming from, could be the first offering from Kris’s The Teacha & The Student album due this year, but he shows he hasn’t lost it with an abrasive track and his usual mic blistering verses. Gotta love the mic blistering verses. Anyway, Redman shows up to add even more [cont.]
Today’s generation of emcees pay homage to Krs-One and Buckshot, whose “Survival Skills” LP is in stores now on Duck Down. Tracklist: 1) Survival Kit (Intro) by DJ Sherazta 2) Gotcha Opin Original (RMX) – Tanya Morgan (produced by NVME) 3) South Bronx (RMX) – Cause, The Kid Daytona & Chaundon (produced by NVME) 4) [cont.]
Well, despite all of the strange “Jay-Z’s a biter” accusations surrounding this album (more on that in a second), the seminal team-up of KRS-One and Buckshot, Survival Skills, should produce good results when it’s released September 15th on Duck Down Recordings. The album boasts a long list guest stars, including Mary J. Blige, Slug Of [cont.]
I have an affinity for legends who continue their careers beyond their primes. I liked it when Jordan came back in his forties. I’m glad Favre is going to play another year. Shaq’s not what he used to be, but he’s still worth having around. The thing is when a legend plays until he’s entirely [cont.]
In one of the most highly controversial moves in music 2006, veteran rapper Nasir Jones dug a hole, threw Hip-Hop in a coffin, buried it, and declared the genre deceased. While not everyone agreed with the Queensbridge MC, his album Hip-Hop is Dead served as a pretty convincing epitaph for the genre that was [cont.]
Throughout a career that spans almost twenty years now, KRS-One has undoubtedly paid his dues, delivering countless classic albums and classic singles, from “Criminal Minded” to “Step Into A World”. However, as the years go on, new generations of hip-hop fans emerge, many not even knowing who KRS-One is, or what the letters “B.D.P.” stand [cont.]
KRS-ONE shocked us all in 2002 with the release of Spirtual Minded, the once atheist rapper’s leap of faith into gospel rap, led many fans to say that the always contradictory emcee had finally fallen off. Never that. Before you could say “G. Simone”, Kris came back with Prophets Vs. Profits, that would later be [cont.]
When the term “Gospel Rap” is mentioned, images of Reverend Run, Ma$e, and Hammer pop into your mind, usually with negative conotations. Why? Most likely because hip-hop is, for the most part, a hardcore music artform born in the streets, which directly contradicts the sound that each of these artists have embraced after their [cont.]
Ok, despair now. KRS-ONE proves that his new calling card might be mediocrity with a flat pair of songs on a 12″ that’d be forgotten in a New York minute if it wasn’t for the Blastmaster’s name cred. Maybe the fatal flaw with “Hot”, is that KRS’ self-produced beat is flatter than Utah salt fields but [cont.]
After a four-year sabbatical, the self-christened “god” of hip-hop, KRS-ONE, has returned to reclaim his spot as hip-hop’s moral-conscious with Sneak Attack. While Krs’ re-entry comes without the same fanfare/anticipation he is normally accustomed too, Sneak Attack proves that his voice and ideologies have never been more needed.
