    KRS is just as schizophrenic as Tupac.

    About half of what he says makes sense but the other half contradicts it.

    You can't really follow what he says to the letter because he's not giving specific, clear instructions to the listener.

    He means well (like PAC), he's sincere, but he doesn't know how to really lead. He's been around for 25 years and he still hasn't mastered finance, International finance. He hasn't mastered corporate America. KRS got in the industry around the same time as Jay Z and Dr Dre but they've mastered corporate America and have real power (how they use their power is subject for debate).

    To really be a revolutionary you have to master Wall Street and know how international trade works. Then you have enough power to make a real difference. Once you've mastered Wall Street and finance you can buy and sell tv stations and radio stations. You can buy and sell distribution companies. When you've mastered Wall Street and International finance you can buy and sell companies that employ people and create jobs. You can buy and sell sports teams.

    When you've mastered Wall Street and Finance you can underwrite movies in Hollywood.

    Again, I think KRS means well but he doesn't know HOW to accomplish what he wants to do.

    You can't just talk a good game. Thats not good enough in 2015.

    KRS-One is the GOAT.

    That's what I thought 20 years ago.

    I don't understand you ? bruh. Instead of listen to the man, y'all be on some "oh that's Krs, ain't nobody tryna hear this old ? ". Ol school hiphop headz be droppin insightful ? . Even if you don't agree with everything he says, he LIVES hiphop culture. This is a hiphop site right? Why do you ? ignore the history smh

    Because the teacher fugazi like most teachers in America.

    He just talks too much honestly. As a result he's not very precise with his points.

    I believe he's pointing out that some people out there who reject the notion of ? will still follow some ? that a rapper says even when that rapper's statements are influenced by his own belief in ? .
