There aren’t many, if any, MC’s that have been in the game for over 30 years and still perform with the same ferocity and intensity as Lawrence Parker aka KRS-One.
We remember him stalking around the Jazz Cafe stage on a Friday few years back, with his giant frame, the crowd hanging off every word that he spat into the mic. You could tell that he hadn’t lost one iota of the burning passion that has been lit since 1985.
Sweating out of every pore, he went on extended freestyles, riffing off people in the crowd and also running through his deep reservoir of classic tunes.
This month you will have the chance to witness this raw energy for themselves as he takes to the mic in London’s Koko on the 26th but not before he visits Manchester’s Blues Kitchen on the 21st and 22nd.
