The Teacher, the embodiment of the Boom Bap; KRS One is probably the greatest live performer in Hip Hop History, he can go to Queens New York and get the entire borough jumping doing a song that disses Queens! (South Bronx) The Albums Criminal Minded and By All Means Necessary are lauded as hip Hop classics and his battle songs/rhymes and freestyles cement is place as one of the greatest of all time Knowledge Reigns Supreme over Nearly Everybody

Memorable Bars

Im not saying Im number one, uh sorry I lied Im number one two three four and five.

So you think that hip-hop had it’s start out in Queensbridge, If you popped that junk up in the Bronx you might not live.

I’m not a musical maniac or b-boy fanatic, I simply made use of what was upstairs in the attic

Cause girls look so good but their brain is not ready, I don’t know I’d rather talk to a woman cause her mind is so steady, so here we go

How many mc’s must get dissed before somebody says, “Don’t f*** with Kris!”
