Gang Starr Foundation's Krumb Snatcha Announces Retirement From Hip Hop

Demetrius Gibbs says that he will no longer record any music.

Gang Starr Foundation's Krumb Snatcha has announced that he is retiring from Hip Hop.

In a post on his Facebook page (via DJ Premier Blog), the rapper, whose real name is Demetrius Gibbs, said that "due to unfortunate circumstances I have decided to no longer be a part of certain elements and or musical endeavors." Though he did not explicitly state why he's hanging up the mic, he said that he will instead "honor my commitment to the youth."

The Guru affiliate released his first single in 1996, and made a standout guest appearance on Gang Starr's "Make 'Em Pay" off of 1998's Moment of Truth. He most recently released The Resurrection of Tha Golden Wolf last fall.

Read his full statement below.

Unfortunately due to unfortunate circumstances I have decided to no longer be a part of certain elements and or musical endeavors. As of this day I no longer am affiliated with any label and/or management… I apologize to friends and fans but changing and putting self first is in my best interest. There will be no next album from me… I have decided to honor my commitment to the youth. Thank you all… God bless!!! -Demetrius Gibbs aka Krumb Snatcha

    Hope dude finds whatever he's looking for. I still will throw in Snatcha Season Pt1 every now and again. Was a true emcee, but must not have the passion he once did. Peace.

      First of I would like to respond to this I do heroin garbage, I do not do any of the such and I would really appreciate if people with unclean and devious intentions do not tarnish my name like this. For the past 5 to 6 years I have been working with children in an after school program. I have decided to return to what I truley love and do something more postive with my life. I HAVE CHILDREN!!! DO NOT DISRESPECT MY NAME LIKE THAT!!! COMMENTS AND IGNORANCE LIKE THIS IS ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS I DECIDED TO WALK A WAY!!! SORRY IF I OFFENDED ANY ONE BUT DONT JUDGE BECAUSE YOU WOULD BE JUDGED IN THE SAME MANNER! ONE!

    good news he is just average. now drake and wayne

    • hiphopisdead

      you're an idiot. If you even knew the the difference between what's on the radio and what IS HIP HOP...drake and wayne...follow the same formula for EVERY TRACK they make. Catchy, yes...hip hip, no. DO YOUR RESEARCH, and get some musical taste. If you think KS is average, then hows about YOU throw a few bars down for us.

    He must be going to prison.

    • turftalka

      Not to say you're wrong but there would be some kind of report that he was going to prison if he was. It could be a family member died or he could've had a drug problem and he's going to rehab.
