Hip-hop legend KRS-One is more than a rapper or a mere entertainer; hes an edutainer, a seminal figure in the genre who uses his skilled flow to teach the head-bobbing masses. In this era of hip-hop ignorance, the rapper who brought us hits like My Philosophy, Sound of da Police, and Self Destruction is more important than ever. Hear The Teacha preach during the ambitious I Am Hip-Hop Preservation Tour, four days of music, lectures, and celebrations of all things old-school. Events include the undeniably phenomenal concert featuring Method Man and Entourages Saigon on Wednesday, October 25, and the Come Correct B-Boy Community Jam on Friday, October 27. Today KRS-One will drop knowledge from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. at the African Heritage Cultural Arts Center. He will present the second part of his successful Art of Civilization Building lecture as an official fundraiser for next years Organic Hip-Hop lineup of events, and admission is ten dollars.
