Beef: KRS-One Vs. Adisa Banjoko
"What I wanna do is jump across the table and beat your fuckin ass!" - KRS-One
As tight-lipped as it was kept, KRS-One recently threatened to hand music journalist/writer Adisa Banjoko a remarkable ass-whoopin’ at a recent Hip-Hop conference. As most of you probably know by now, there was this Hip-Hop round table at Stanford University on March 9th, with Davey D, Busy Bee, KRS, etc in attendance. Kris was asked, “What does it mean to be a Hip-Hop artist?” He got all ultra-meta-philosophical and technical on the subject before drawing a lyrical sword on Bay area writer Adisa, even going as far as calling him an enemy to Black culture and an FBI agent.
Here’s the audio for the two of you with enough patience to actually listen to a panel.
According to Davey D, Afrika Bambaataa stepped in and helped the two men reconcile their differences (aka squash the beef) afterwards. It couldn't have happened any other way, 'cause you know arguing with Bam is like arguing with your uncle – not cool. Anyway, congrats to both The Bishop and The Teacha for acting like grown men immediately after acting like 50 and Game.
