KRS ONE TALKS LIFE & HIP-HOP ON LIVE FROM I-5 RADIO
On November 4, 2011 The Live From I-5 Radio Program was visited by a legend, pioneer, philosopher, guardian and father/son of Hip-Hop Culture - the great Blastmaster & Teacha' KRS-ONE.
Not only is KRS ONE one of my favorite Hip-Hop 'artists', but he is the father that many of my homeboys and I did not have. A wise man of color spitting game, knowledge, intelligence and raw MC skills was and still IS a rarity. He slayed sucka MCs and brilliant MCs during his hey-day and could still do it today if challenged. More than an MC, KRS ONE is a B-Boy, Graf Artist and embodies the BEST of Hip-Hop culture from its foundation.
Now in his mid-40s, once thought an age of irrelevance in Hip-Hop, KRS ONE is undertaking what he and others consider his most important and relevant work as the founder, leader and spiritual guide of The Temple of Hip-Hop - an organization which aims to solidify Hip-Hop as a cultural body that embodies all aspects of life, somewhat 'religiously'. KRS ONE is adamant about the part of Hi-Hop being a way of life (almost religously) because of how the culture itself saved and advanced his own life thanks to the gifts of The Jamaican-American founders of the culture, namely Kool Herc, Afrika Bambaataa & DJ Grandmaster Flash... Enough of me. Listen to The Teacha' spit his game and name on KAOS 89.3 FM - Olympia's KAOS Block Party on my Live From I-5 with LUVVA J Show... Audio DOPE!
Peace, Love & Courage,
LUVVA J, In A Real Way!
Winners Train, Losers Complain... Do Yo' Thang!
