KRS-One & Buckshot - Robot

DJBooth_logo2x

In a music game that's moving faster with each passing day, up-and-comers could certainly use a primer on industry Survival Skills, and there are no two individuals more qualified to coauthor this handbook than veteran emcee Buckshot and even more veteran emcee KRS-One. Now, the twosome have unveiled what may well be the most crucial chapter in their forthcoming reference work/collaborative LP. Over Mobb Deep rapper/producer Havoc's tense, midtempo instrumental, the emcees decry the copycat mentality that leads artists to act like Robots in pursuit of the next assembly-line hit, even providing a few helpful 'Thou shalts' and 'shalt nots' for those seeking to elevate their game: biting, hating, and faking are strictly prohibited, while originality and realness are strongly encouraged. KRS says it best: “We're the orthodoxy.” When dealing with two vets of this caliber, you know what you're getting—for more pure, unfiltered hip-hop with an old-school mindset, pick up a copy of Survival Skills when it drops August 25th.
