KRS Calls For DJ's To Save The HipHop Artform

"Once and for all, the American public needs to hear from the DJ's in a unified voice," KRS One shared. "There are questions that the American public has for for the DJ and one of the concerns of the American public, for DJ's in every medium, is the lack of responsibility that DJ's show to younger ears. The DJ's I know care about the public they play for; many of them are responsible parents themselves. It is not that DJ's are irresponsible, it is that DJ's do not speak in one unified voice on anything."

In a call for DJ solidarity, having himself started out as a DJ, KRS along with founder A.Shaw have a march organized for August 29th in Washington D.C
The goal is to create unity amongst responsible DJ's who have respect for younger ears, and are heedful of the music they support. The event will inform and inspire with performances and workshops.

I love me some KRS. He's so necessary to HipHop. We're blessed he's still doing his thing.

I'm still catching up with the to-do list (hopefully I'll be pretty caught up by end of week, but I won't be in the house alot so I'm not sure...), but I did get your email. Pardon the delays.

I'll peep the meme, Chica.

Shine on

Got it. I sent a response in the wee hours of the a.m.
I was out most of the day.

I can't wait until openmokos are up and running. I could definitely use a tablet phone when I'm out of the house...

Shine on Chica
