KRS-One: the man behind the music

I can't remember how long I've been a KRS-One fan but I know that for as long as I can remember, I've thought nothing but the highest of high things of this talented man. a fellow vegetarian and fighter of violence, the man also know as the teacha or the philosopher is quite the force to be reckoned with.

tonite at the world famous mic club, KRS-One stopped through and rapped with dres about the possibility of some future collaborations. I don't know if I'm ready to admit that I was star struck but seeing this humble legend did put a smile on my face and some pep in my step. and the possibility of working with him down the line tickled my soul.

how could he do all this right? well, KRS-One was one of the definers of hip hop. I agree with what stands for and is a well balanced person. on stage he's an explosive shot gun ready for blast off but outside of that environment, his easy smile is comforting and his soul an old one. I promise that I'm not swooning over this man who has been both the subject of controversy and recipient of lifetime awards, but he does leave a refreshing taste in my mouth--figuratively speaking--and gives great hugs.

at the end of this day, I'm honored to have been in the presence of greatness and look forward to any future endeavors with this quiet storm of a man.
