Temple - KRS ONE at the GardenCOPY



The Teacha Returns
KRS ONE Set To Crush The Garden
On October 2, 2008 Madison Square Garden in New York City will be awakened by the presence of an emcee, who some call the best who ever did it. Kris Parker aka The Teacha, KRS ONE (Knowlege Reigns  Supreme Over Nearly Everyone), has been killin mics and destroying stages for 22 years since his debut in 1986. After years of spreading the message of intellectual and spiritual freedom thru Hip Hop, he is set to return once more to show everyone what real Hip Hop is all about. Since his humble beginings as a homeless teen living in NYC and the untimely death of his DJ Scott La Rock, KRS ONE has conquered adversity to remain among the most accomplished, and well respected artists around the world. Not just as a  Hiphoppa, but as a scholar, organizer and historian, the Teacha, has carried on the principles of peace, love, awareness and health thru a Hip Hop lifestyle while steering clear of the numerous controversies which plague most artists. Is KRS ONE the best example of what a Hiphoppa could be? Maybe. Is he the best emcee spittin lyrics today? Definitely. If there are any doubts catch him on the Stop The Violence Tour, as he and the Temple of Hip Hop travel from coast to coast in preparation for the release of the Self Construction album project dropping in early 2009.
Bow Wow Gives Respect Due
While going about his normal routine recently, the artist known as Bow Wow, happened to hear a DJ Revolution mix featuring KRS ONE called the Deejay. The originality, concept and skillz, as per usual for the Teacha, were of such a high quality, Bow Wow was inspired to make a special youtube video about it. He commented: "KRS is definitely an icon, a legend, a godfather in Hip Hop, somebody that you need to study if you new, gettin into Hip Hop. Even though I make records like Marco Polo and Shorty Like Mine that doesn't mean that I have a  lack knowledge for the profession that I'm in... (KRS ONE) is wicked. He is going all the way in, completely in...This is about the younger generations saluting the big homies in Hip Hop, and just being a fan. I thank LL, KRS, Rakim, Special Ed, Biggie, Pac, EPMD, and Public Enemy for giving cats like me a chance. I'm a superstar because of you guys. It makes young cats like myself wake up and understand what it is that we doin. I'm speaking for all the young ctas from myself to Souljah Boy.
We salute yall."

Hip Hop Politics: 101
logo-shadesAt a private meeting in the backwoods of NJ, Kurt Nice, founder of Shades of Hip Hop and  Member of the Temple of Hip Hop asked , KRS ONE - "How do you feel about Sara Palin?" The Teacha simply replied "How does Sara Palin feel about Hip Hop?" In an age where almost every major business corporation utilizes (or exploits) hip-hop to promote an agenda and make money, now is the time that Hip Hop must be recognized for the influence it has on modern culture. With this recognition must come representation, by our elected officials. If you don't represent our agenda as a Hip Hop family, don't expect our vote.
By contrast, earlier this year, Jah Jah Shakur asked presidential candidate Barack Obama how he felt about Hip Hop. He replied... "I support positive Hip Hop and Rap music to the fullest...I listened to a lot of Hip Hop in college and I still support Hip Hop music and culture."
