KRS One Digital Streaming Platforms Hacked With New Nintendo Type Musical Named “Real Ass Boom Bap”

On Dec. 23rd on all of KRS One‘s Digital Streaming Platforms we noticed he released a new single but seems to be a prank or hack in our opinion. With the new upload named “Real Ass Boom Bap”, we were thinking he dropped some new heat or a sequel to his classic “Return of the Boom Bap”. Once clicking on it to stream it seems to be a Nintendo type musical.

In hopes of this being fake with the immediate deletion, it seems like it isn’t since it’s still live on Spotify and YouTube.

SOURCE PREVIEW: Big Daddy Kane vs. KRS-One Who Wins the VERZUZ?

attachment big daddy kane krs one

New York City will once again be the location for VERZUZ. Big Daddy Kane and KRS-One are set to take over the Barclays Center. After the announcement was made official, fans began to go into the discographies of both artists and attempt to pick a winner.

Brooklynite Antonio Hardy aka Big Daddy Kane stepped on the scene with the Juice Crew in the late ’80s and has been rocking the mic and setting cultural trends ever since. Big Daddy Kane was the first Hip Hop artist to sell out the Apollo Theatre not once but twice with his women-only show. His career has solidified him in hip-hop history putting out hits such as “Ain’t No Half Steppin”, “I Get The Job Done”, and “Smooth Operator.”

KRS-One solo career began 28 years ago with the release of Return Of The Boom Bap recorded almost totally in the legendary D&D Studios. With production from DJ Premier, Kid Capri, and Showbiz of Showbiz & A.G. while being promoted and marketed by Jive Records, this album is one of Hip Hop’s buried treasures and received 4 mics from The Source Magazine.

Prior to the solo release, KRS-One was an integral member of Boogie Down Productions, teaming with DJ Scott La Rock and Derrick “D-Nice” Jones. After rocking with the crew for five albums, KRS-One would follow his Return of the Booom Bap album with a self-titled release, I Got Next, and an onslaught of albums that run on to today with his Between the Protests album dropping late last year.

With the stage for the VERZUZ set, The Source gives a taste of what will come from Barclays Sunday night. Check out five selections from both KRS-One and Big Daddy Kane then let us know who gets the win when Sunday rolls around.

New York City will once again be the location for VERZUZ. The official account for the hit music battle series teased the new battle via silhouette. Fans and Snoop Dogg have already figured it out.

“WANNA PLAY? We got a new VERZUZ on the way Sunday, October 17th, brought to you by the killer new series, #Chucky,” the announcement read. “Who do y’all think it is!? Drop your guesses in the comments below and we’ll pick an entry at random to get a pair of tix!”

The announcement is delivered in spooky season fashion as the mid-October battle is brought to you by the new USA horror series Chucky.

“Big daddy. Kane. V. K. R. S1,” Snoop wrote.

Today In Hip Hop History: KRS-One Released His ‘Return Of The Boom Bap’ LP 28 Years Ago

tumblr pygp6wVuNa1t1yehoo1 1280

Blastmaster KRS 1 dropped his first solo album 28 years ago today.

Sometimes the best way to do things is to do it yourself. This is the realization that KRS, the general of the Boogie Down Productions crew, came to when he dropped Return Of The Boom Bap. It was his first solo LP and was recorded almost totally in the legendary D&D Studios. With production from DJ Premier, Kid Capri, and Showbiz of Showbiz & A.G. while being promoted and marketed by Jive Records, this album is one of Hip Hop’s buried treasures. Rated 4 mics by The Source Magazine, songs like “Outta Here” spoke directly to new jack emcees seeking fame, while tracks like “Black Cop” and “Sound Of The Police” spoke consciousness to the masses and still rocked the clubs. The album peaked at #37 on the Billboard 200.

We thank the Blastmaster for such a classic project that has stood the test of time. Salute!

Today in Hip-Hop History: BDP’s Scott La Rock Shot And Killed In The Bronx 34 Years Ago

Screen Shot 2021 08 27 at 9.09.17 AM

On this date 34 years ago, Scott Sterling aka DJ Scott La Rock of Boogie Down Productions was shot and killed in the South Bronx.

In an attempt to break up a fight on 167th and University Avenue near the Highbridge Housing Projects in the South Bronx, Scott Sterling, known to the world as DJ Scott La Rock of the mighty Boogie Down Productions, was shot and killed, he died on the scene.

The shooting was the first of its kind in Hip Hop, with BDP being one of the main artists to usher in the “Golden Era”, it was a shock to the entire Hip Hop community to have KRS-1’s DJ shot in cold blood. Ironically, this happened during the apex of their classic debut album Criminal Minded, where Scott and Kris were posing with pistols, rifles, and no smiles. Sterling’s death fueled KRS to start the Stop The Violence Movement, which was widely publicized with the By All Means Necessary album, and the star-studded “Self Destruction” single.

RIP to Scott La Rock! He Still Lives Thru His Music!

Today In Hip Hop History: BDP’s ‘Edutainment’ LP Dropped 31 Years Ago

tumblr purm1y5A101t1yehoo1 1280

Produced primarily by the Blastmaster KRS himself along with the Human 808 D-Nice, Edutainment is arguably one of BDP’s best albums before KRS began to venture into solo projects. The title was definitive of its contents; education through the entertainment of Hip-Hop music. This album was also the most populated in terms of members of Boogie Down Productions, with appearances from Ms. Melodie, her sister Harmony, Jamal Ski, D-Nice, Willie Dee, Mc Boo, and Kris’ brother Kenny Parker. Prior to this, BDP only consisted of D-Nice, KRS, and the late DJ Scott La Rock.

The 21 song track listing included songs and skits, which were called “Exhibits”, where The Teacha and Black Power icon Kwame Ture spoke to cheering crowds about various subjects pertaining to Black people. Joints like the premier single “Love Is Gonna Getcha”, “Breath Control II”, and “Blackman In Effect” not only showed Kris’ cultural and political knowledge, but magnified his lyrical ability to adapt to any subject. “100 Guns”, which was remade by Ja Rule and Fat Joe during their beef with 50 Cent, further solidified the album’s street cred. From “Beef”(healthy eating) to “30 Cops Or More”(police brutality), Edutainment carried the appropriate title for what was in store for its listeners.

Supreme salute to KRS, the whole BDP crew from that era, and the entire BX. Peace!
