Born Kris Parker in Brooklyn 1965, KRS-One left home at 14, and met social worker DJ Scott LaRock in a Bronx homeless shelter. The pair formed Boogie Down Productions, one of the most influential hip-hop outfits of the 80's.
If Osama bin Laden ever buys a rap album, he'll probably start with a CD by KRS-One.
The hip-hop anarchist has declared his solidarity with al-Qaida by asserting that he and other African-Americans "cheered when 9-11 happened," reports the New York Daily News.
The rapper, real name Kris Parker, defiled the memory of those who died in the terrorist attacks as he spouted off at a recent New Yorker Festival panel discussion.
"I say that proudly," the Boogie Down Productions founder went on, insisting that, before the attack, security guards kept Blacks out of the World Trade Center "because of the way we talk and dress.
Anyone who would cheer when lives are being taken for no reason other than pure hatred is sick in the head and needs to be saved from a burning, everlasting HELL! You know how these blabberers like to run their mouth while enjoying all the riches of our country. I say if you dont like America, or if you think you will be treated any better(like dressing with your underwear out and your britches half way down your but)in any other country, then there are planes and ships leaving every day, every hour!!Why dont you get your ticket? If it is too complicated, Im sure we can find someone to help you, IF you promise not to come back.But,of course,you wouldnt dare go anywhere else.They wouldnt put up with treason like America has for the last few years. RAY CHARLES said it best"Hit the road,Jack,and dont you come back no mo,no mo,no mo,no mo!Hit the road,Jack,and dont you come back no mo,o,WHADISAY!?Blacks(and everyone else,too) have it made here like no where else.If not, why are they still here??and why do people risk their lives to get here illegally?If you dont appreciate America, then send back your ill-gotten money when you get to paradise in your new country.
I do not quite beleive that security guards kept "blacks" out of the WTC,anyway, for i read the testimony of one negro who was in one of the towers when the plane smashed into it ,he actually saw it coming,and he survived! (it was in a magazine i read .)
Umm... Norman, I might be wrong but I think azenath's comments were probably directed at this Parker guy in the article? If that is the case, I think he is probably justified in labelling Parker a fool!
If the US can lock up people in Cuba for years with no trial you would think they would silence this Parker nut who is spouting treason openly. No doubt his music is pathetic so he is looking for any publicity he can get.
Sad that people like this (and his terrorist friends) can have such bitter, twisted minds to the point that his life is little more than a waste of oxygen. Lets pray he is converted, there is absolutely no other hope for him.
glad to be here in America. land of the free, free to say foolish things like what you said. You are a fool. complaining about not being able to be in the WTC and that may have saved you foolish life. I hope you dont have this kind of attitude all of your foolish life, because if you do you will have lived an angry desparate exsistance Your full of pride and hate and with that inside a fool thats a sad situation.
He says voting in a corrupt society adds more corruption.
At the same time, he is not above collecting the corrupted Dollars of such a corrupted Society to enrich himself so that he have the prominent and influence to say all those foolish things in public.
If he hates America so much, he really should MOVE to Afghanistan and see whether those folks would appreciate his musical talent or slit his throat.
Only in America does he even have the right to exercise such foolish speech. The truth is that he's still around because he loves his money too much. There's nothing like greenbacks, never mind that it comes from a corrupted society and corrupted economy......
The problem with this man and others isn't complicated: "all they that hate [God] love death" - Prov. 8:36. Scripture is our primer on human nature; it ruthlessly displays unregenerate man in all his depravity. Therefore, Christians should not be surprised at the perversity of God's enemies, for anyone who hates Him, hates men also, in an inversion of the two greatest Commandments.
In our day, it has become easier for such to gain a following.
...or we could show love to our "enemies" so they see that the 'justice' of God is not color, ethinic or nationally -coded. I do not like KRS-1's reaction t othis EVIL but he sees the world as a pagan & not as a beleiver. Let's pray for them in this situation instead of hustling them off to another country in a greater act of injustice.
I am a Black American!! I disagree with the title of this article and the generality of KRS-One's assertion about the attacks. First, above all lets make it clear that "Blacks" do not cheer the attacks on the World Trade Center. I have serviced my country in the military for twenty years and have serviced honorably. Not because I had to but in order to serve the country I live in. With all of the writings going around, I have yet to here of any Blacks or other races trying to leave this country. Secondly, no one wants to see your underwear. I don't believe that ANY parent raises their child to wear their clothes like that!!! This in no way implies that "Blacks" are happy about the attacks. To even suggest that is irresponsible of someone like KRS-One. Just as it was for Malcolm X. The fact of the matter is we have to stop thinking that just because we have freedom of speech that we can make ignorant, uninformed comments as if to speak for all. That is not the way to fix anything. So we as adults need to stop thinking of ourselves as being a victim and always looking for someone to take care of us. We need to start working to take care of ourselves. If I didn't know better I would say that is a slave mentality and that's the real problem. Stop blaming other and take responsibity!!
