Mama & The Doctor's Orders present
KRS One at The Jazz Cafe, London
KRS-One started his career as one half of Boogie Down Productions in 1985 with DJ Scott La Rock, with whom he released his debut album, shortly after which Scott La Rock was murdered. Before the unfortunate passing of Scott La Rock, the duo had pioneered the fusing of hip-hop and dancehall with this inaugural LP, also laying down the basis of what would eventually become gangsta rap.
KRS-One’s solo career has been fruitful since the split of BDP in 1992, implementing his political lyrics and influence onto the tracks he was producing. Aside from his musical projects, KRS-One also started the Stop The Violence Movement, which was a nod towards his former musical partner who was previously killed.
Throughout his life as a solo artist, KRS-One has released a long line of well known tracks both in the commercial world and into the underground, with 1993’s ‘Sound Of Da Police’ being one of his most popular (and earliest) tunes. ‘Step Into A World’, ‘I Can’t Wake Up’ and ‘Black Cop’ are just a few more of his many highly praised tracks.
After touring Australia for the first time this year, KRS-One will be coming to the UK this Spring and will playing two very special gigs at one of the capitals most intimate venues, Camden’s Jazz Café on Tuesday the 19th of May.
