KRS-One speaks on Jay-Z stealing “Death of Autotune” & “Blueprint”

Culture VI Media, Inc. asks the questions that true hardcore Hip Hop fans have been wondering for years .Kudos to these guys for having the cajones to ask the tough questions!

KRS-One & Buckshot (tho mostly KRS in this clip) talk about their song Robot, which debuted months ahead of Jay-Z’s “D.O.A.”. Both records were essentially saying the same thing. He talks about the respect that Jay-Z showed in re-using the theme, and also about naming his “Blueprint” series years after KRS released his own album titled “Blueprint”.

Also talks on a possible collab on the song and his overall feelings on Jay-Z.

The Blastmaster KRS-One has been educating Hip-Hop and the masses for over 20 years. As he gears to release his latest project Survival Skills on September 15 with Duck Down front-man Buckshot, KRS spoke to Hip-Hop Wired exclusively about the controversial documentary The Obama Deception. In the film, KRS speaks on secret societies running the United States and the world as well as his views on the nation’s first African-American President. Receiving some flack for his outspoken views, KRS-One addresses the film and his real feelings about President Obama and it’s not exactly what you think. His philosophy never is but edutaining nonetheless.

“If they controlled it before, what makes you think they’re not controlling it now? The country was on the verge of revolution. They threw a Black man up, now we like this (complacent). They put a Black face on the New World Order and now we all happy. KRS ain’t buying it.” …KRS-One (The Obama Deception).

Kudos to the Blast Master. Every system needs Checks & Balances. Like I said before lets see how quick they are to distance themselves from the “Teacher” and label him crazy but nobody will dare step up to debate the facts upon which he is professing. This should be interesting. We use to always say KRS-ONE is the last dude you want on the opposing team.

[video] KRS-ONE on Alex Jones Discussing Obama Conspiracies

Here it is!  KRS-ONE & Alex Jones trade Obama conspiracy theories and the Obamanites “mindless loyalty” to the Free World’s new leader. Alot of points are made, especially some that will upset those who drunk the Kool-Aid and ate the “O” cereal.  I can envision this argument going on for the next four years…they are technically pulling his skirt.  What I wonder is how long will the pundits continue to dodge having this debate?   Remember, YOU MUST LEARNNNN

Sprint \'Instinct\'

The other night at KRS-One‘s “Stop the Violence” recording session he went into his theory about the “revolution” being neutralized by technology like GPS. He said every time he gets in his Benz and the automated voice kicks in he knows the fight has been lost. Slavery is comforting. Freedom is without comfort. With that in mind we present to you the Sprint ‘Instinct’ that utilizes that same GPS technology to locate on-site whatever your momentary desirables are. Want pizza? Just talk in to the phone. Who doesn’t love the comforts of technology even if you’re compromising you’re own sense of ‘privacy.’
