There’s a great video with KRS-One on SF Iam. KRS-ONE is one of the pioneers in rap, and hip-hop, back in the day with it was called “the jam.” KRS-One tells it like it is to a group of students at the Academy of Art in San Francisco. KRS-One is the man and I love his music and hope to hear more of it.

KRS has got a great philosophy on school and life. You can check out the vid here:
