KRS-One
 

Appearing on the rap scene in 1986 as Boogie Down Productions releasing his first hit single “South Bronx” with his late DJ Scott La Rock, KRS “the one” made it clear that Hip Hop was going to have to take itself a lot more seriously than simply being a music genre.

With 20 published albums to his credit and his numerous appearances with other artists, KRS-One is believed to have written the most rhymes in Hip Hop’s history.

In the 1990s as “hip-hop” grew more and more commercialized and corporate, it was KRS-One that openly rejected such cultural exploitation and materialism grounding Hip Hop in its original principles of peace, love, unity and safely having fun.

Teaching everything from self-creation to stopping violence; from vegetarianism to transcendental meditation, from the establishment of Hip Hop Appreciation Week (every third week in May), to establishing Hip Hop as an international culture at the United Nations (2001), KRS-One has single-handedly held the history and original arts of Hip Hop together now for over two decades.

In addition to lecturing at over 500 universities in the United States and publishing three ground-breaking books; “The Science of Rap” (1995), “Ruminations” (2003), and the Gospel of Hip Hop” (2009), KRS-One has also established the Stop The Violence Movement (1989), influenced the creation of the “West-Coast All-Stars’ anti-gang anthem “We’re All In The Same Gang” (1990), warned the Hip Hop community against giving up their humanity for technological advancement (H. E. A. L.—Human Education Against Lies-1991), and has established the Temple of Hip Hop for the spiritual exploration of Hip Hop’s culture (1996).

It was KRS-One who first argued that “rap is something we do; Hip Hop is something we live” and introduced the “I am Hip Hop” philosophy in 1994 which Black Entertainment Television uses as the title of their Hip Hop Lifetime Achievement Award today. Without question, KRS-One has been the loudest voice for the actual preservation and expansion of original Hip Hop worldwide.

When he is not touring or lecturing, on his so-called “down-time”, KRS-One continues to share his unique knowledge of Hip Hop to younger audiences eager to hear the ‘teacha’ speak. Operating as a kind of “pop-up” school, KRS-One’s Temple of Hip Hop has appeared in various cities in USA also in the UK and Europe offering the more serious student of Hip Hop an effective way to live and understand the culture of Hip Hop more deeply.

KRS-One, the lyrical legend, drops his new 2017 album ‘The World Is Mind’. KRS-One brings that Boom Bap back, with tracks like; ‘Raw BEAT’ and the graffiti tribute ‘Out for Fame’. In addition KRS-One celebrates the South African clique langue on ‘Keep It Clicking’ and shares ancient wisdom on the title track ‘The World Is Mind’. This is another banger from the Hip Hop legend.

DJ Heron
 
DJ Heron, born in Lima, Peru raised in Brooklyn, New York he is undoubtedly no stranger to the hip-hop culture. Hip-Hop started with DJ and that’s what DJ Heron has been doing since the young age of 12 years old. Roaming the streets of Brooklyn, his older cousin made him carry countless of records that it was only a matter of time for Heron to start doing what he does best; being on the 1’s and 2’s. Couple of years later, he moved to South Florida to bless locals with sounds of the underground Hip-Hop that was hitting the airwaves in New York. Since there was a lack of Hip-Hop culture in Florida, DJ Heron would take frequent trips back to New York for the weekend just to record the hottest releases and formulate high- demand mix tapes Floridians would insist for when he would fly back down.
 
Apart from selling exclusive rare mix tapes, he started his first production company called 3rd Eye Productions with partner DJ Klassik now known as DJ Chris. During that time, DJ Heron starting producing vicious beats which were the ember that made him establish his own first studio called Florida Room Productions. Creating a buzz with his production, he landed his first record deal with Atlantic at just 18 years old. Unfortunately after 7 years the studio was robbed leaving him without his tools but not his luck. Shortly after the robbery occurred, a new door opened for DJ Heron that would change his career forever. Sony Music Records signed DJ Heron to their label giving him the opportunities to work with several artists, make his own productions, and go on the White Lion Tour that featured Tego Calderon, DJ Laz, Don Omar, and Voltio.
 
Having much success throughout his career, DJ Heron has opened up for many hip hop shows including Black Sheep, Leaders of the New School, Public Enemy with Queen Latifah, Tim Dog, and Termanology just to name a few . Furthermore, he was also the winner of the Pro AM DJ Battle of 2011 in which he competed with several other DJs nationwide. Side by side with host/ emcee Saheed, DJ Heron is now the main resident DJ of Re-Up radio, an online radio show airing every week playing old school, new school, and independent Hip-Hop artists music worldwide to fans tuning in across the globe. It won’t be long till’ you hear DJ Heron’s skills with upcoming Re-Up Radio mix tapes soon to be released throughout the year.
