KRS-One

THE WELLY CLUB, 105-107 Beverley Road, Hull, HU3 1TS

26 May 2019

7.30pm

£18

18+

Hailing from the Bronx, KRS-One rose to prominence as part of the group Boogie Down Productions, which he formed with DJ Scott La Rock in the mid 1980s. Following the release of the group’s debut album, Criminal Minded, La Rock was shot dead, but KRS-One continued the group, effectively as a solo project.

When it comes to Hip Hop, no one is as consistent and influential as KRS-One. It is impossible to discuss Hip Hop’s history without discussing KRS-One. His reputation as both a live performer and as Hip Hop’s resident ͞Teacha͟ has reached mythic proportions. As author Tavis Smiley has put it; ͞You are going to encounter a man who has sincerely sought to develop a relevant, honest and contemporary interpretation of world history, culture, religion, and philosophy. In many ways, his work actually rests in the tradition of great thinkers like W.E.B. DuBois, Carter Woodsen, and John Henrik Clarke, men who have sought to develop a cultural veil through which to interpret the seeming insanity of America.͟
