Lawrence "Kris" Parker (born August 20, 1965), better known by his stage names KRS-One, and Teacha, is an American rapper and occasional producer from The Bronx, New York. KRS-One rose to prominence as part of the hip hop music group Boogie Down Productions, which he formed with DJ Scott La Rock in the mid-1980s. KRS-One is best known for his top hits, "Sound of da Police", "Love's gonna get'cha (material love)" and "My Philosophy"
KRS-One is a monument to longevity within the Hip Hop game, and he is living proof that as long as artists stay true to themselves, they can make amazing music for decades rather than years. Unwavering authenticity gives KRS-One credibility and maximum respect of real Hip Hop heads, whatever critics say and haters may throw at him. His legacy is untouchable and there can be no debate about the most influential or the best-ever emcee without including KRS-One in that conversation – and putting him at the top spot when all talking is done
By this time KRS-One was mentoring a younger generation of urban storytellers, some of whom appear here in the string of interludes (Method Man, Jeru the Damaja) and some of whom guest on the songs themselves (Fat Joe, Channel Live, Das Efx, Busta Rhymes). This album is very relaxed-almost as though KRS-One had simply to dip his mighty ladle into the creative juices of the culture he'd helped create and spoon the contents into this album
Krs one – krs one. Label: Jive – 01241-41570-1. Format: 2 Vinyl, LP, Album, Reissue. The last KRS record I heard before this was "Criminal Minded", that was almost a decade ago. With so much space in between hearing a KRS record, I was glad that I perked my ears up to this.
KRS-One is the second album released by KRS-One under his own name. The album is weaved together by a string of interludes appearing between songs featuring radio shoutouts to Kris from hip-hop heavyweights including Lord Finesse, Rakim, Method Man, Mr. Magic, Jeru The Damaja and even MC Shan.
KRS-One has played Cervantes many times in the last 10 years, but last night he and is audience seemed extra thirsty for what KRS-One repeatedly referred to as Hiphoppia -Hip Hop’s new city. Those that study with the Temple of Hip Hop have heard the Teacha speak on this subject before, but after an amazing high-energy performance, some of us got a chance to sit down with the Teacha to discuss his upcoming music projects, his six new books, his new Free Style tutorial DVD for emcees, the Temple of Hip Hop and his ideas. It is because the righteous life gives you beautiful memories.
