Matthew Lurie of the Chicago Tribune was on hand as KRS-One performed at the Cubby Bear Friday night. He writes, “Orchestrating a tireless spectacle of lecture, self-promotion, and musical ear-candy, KRS-One, a.k.a. Kris Parker, left no doubts about his towering stature in the world of hip-hop. Yet one approaches the KRS-One of today warily. Hip-hop, as both a marketing category and an art form, has changed a great deal since 1987, when KRS’s Boogie Down Productions gave hip-hop enough ideological depth to play a part in exposing the moral hypocrisies in Reagan-Bush America.”
