Happy 53rd birthday to one of the best to ever do it.
The Blastmaster aka The Teacha aka The MC aka Krs-1 (Krs-One) aka…
Mr. Kris Parker.
This gentleman and his Boogie Down Productions crew were the reason I first fell in love with hip hop.
BDP was it!
While cats were out trying to be smoother than LL, or rocking Adidas like Run-DMC, I was all about Krs-One.
Whenever the question is asked about when or why I fell in love with hip hop as a whole, the video below is my only answer:
This is where my love of the music, the lyrics, the culture, and everything else came from.
So I have to send a resounding THANK YOU to Mr. ‘Knowledge Reigns Supreme Over Nearly Everyone’ for being a huge part of my musical upbringing…and teaching me the difference between rappers and lyricists.
He is 100% the guy you don’t rhyme after.
Happy birthday to the one, the only…
KRS-1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1!!!!!!!!
FRESH…for whatever year you want it to be…you SUCKAS.
What is your favorite KRS-1 song, album, or moment?
