Episode Summary

KRS-One - Hip-Hop MC / Author
KRS-One is an MC, philosopher, activist, author, and lecturer. KRS-One spent his teen years in a homeless shelter in Brooklyn, and it was there he met a counselor named Scott Sterling (aka Scott La Rock). Together they formed Boogie Down Productions in the mid-1980s, releasing their debut album, Criminal Minded (M.I.L. Multimedia), in 1987. Sterling was killed in 1987 and shortly after KRS-One founded the Stop the Violence Movement to address violence in the Hip-Hop community. In 1983, he released his first solo album, Return of the Boom Bap (Jive). To date, KRS-One, also known as "The Teacha," has released 19 full-length albums, has given over 500 lectures, and written three books, The Gospel of Hip Hop: First Instrument (2010), Ruminations (2003), and The Science of Rap (1995). KRS-One was given the BET Lifetime Achievement Award in 2008 for his work with the Stop The Violence Movement and his contribution to Hip-Hop.moreless
