KRS-One Threatens To Sue Radio Stations That Play His Music

KRS-One says, "If the radio ever played my music, I would sue them."

KRS-One recently addressed mainstream radio stations during an interview where he was asked why he "never went mainstream."

"If the radio ever played my music, I would sue them," KRS-One said in a recent interview with whomag.net. "And they know it, which is why they don’t play my music. If you play KRS, I’ll sue you. Straight up. I don’t even want my music on mainstream radio. They don’t deserve it. They destroy careers."   

"Here’s a secret," KRS continued. "I’m going to drop a jewel on you right now. Less is more. Small is big. Marketing and promotion is shit. Physics, mathematics, and cosmology. Why do we breathe? What is oxygen? This is the truth. I only want the truth. I existed before the mainstream. Why would I join them? I watched the mainstream come up and now I’m watching it collapse. I don’t want to be a part of that. I was born in Hip Hop. That’s all I ever needed. That’s it.

"As long as I do that, the devil can’t get me on any angle," KRS continued. "I’m faster than the devil. Always. Now, how do you know? You have to go to hell first. You cant just say your better than the devil just out your mouth. No, face the devil face-to-face and tell him, 'God has arrived. Now here’s what you are going to do.' And you direct the devil. Only if you’re God though. What does that mean? Jive Records dropped everybody in 1999, A Tribe Called Quest, DJ Jazzy Jeff & Fresh Prince, everybody. They signed Britney Spears, Backstreet Boys and N'Sync and got rid of their entire Rap roster. I went to Warner Bros. I asked God, 'What I should do?'  He said, 'Go to California.'  I went to California. I linked up with my man who was A&R of another label in Cali who I met at Columbia. He quit Columbia and went to Warner Bros. I went to Warner Bros. He made me Head of A&R for Warner Bros., actually of Reprise Records, but since it was Warner Bros., the whole label bugged out." 

One of KRS-One's most celebrated songs, 1997's "Step into a World (Rapture's Delight)," was released on KRS' I Got Next album via JIVE.

On "Step into a World (Rapture's Delight)," KRS-One discusses his views on "marketing and promotion."

"Yo, I'm strictly 'bout skills and dope lyrical coastin'," KRS says on the song. "Relying on talent, not marketing and promotion." 

Beyond this, the song's first verse also features KRS' thoughts regarding record labels.

"Stop wastin' your money on marketing schemes," KRS says on the track. "And pretty packages pushin dreams to the fiends / A dope emcee is a dope emcee / With or without a record deal, all can see / And that's who KRS be, son / I'm not the run of mill, cause for the mill I don't run." 

The video for the song, now featured on KRS-One's homepage, can be seen below.

    "So he does maybe 20 to 30 concerts are year around the world" That's a lot of shows for a former artist to have to do to see a profit. ^ LOL If it was Rick Ross, Quote-Man would applaud the work ethic. Since it's KRS, it's a "seemingly long struggle for a former artist to keep up with that work demand and schedule". But let's turn to the Summer Jam screen: "Slick Rick Celebrates Birthday At Brooklyn Bowl & Receives Shout Outs From Hip Hop Legends" ^ you gotta moment? Go scroll through how Quote-Man was saying MC Rickey D ain't a legend. Peep the tactics, the Beastie sublim disses before MCA died. That was in January. Others & I been telling that fool to STFU.

      None of those songs have any impact today, Trayvon. KRS himself won't even play them. They only remind him how he should have sold out when he had the chance. You know like Nas and Jay Z did, two superior MC's who could wipe their ass with KRS's weak as fuck discography.

    Doesnt like mainstream????? How about that song he did with Nas, Kanye, Rakim, and Premo for Nike shoes?

    • ??

      Nike is not a radio station, or a label and they came to these guys not the other way around, that's how they got an MF doom edition Dunk and you know he ain't mainstream. Kicks is really the only thing street, pop, and backpack rap fans agree on.

    Basically he said stop talking shit and do something (go thru hell) confront the devil(the source of your problem in his case major labels and corporations)and let him know god has arrived (approach with confidence), some of ya'll took it all literally and shit, looked at it religiously instead of righteously(you don't have to worship anything to be a righteous person). That's some real shit that calling him old or whatever do not take away from what was said.

    Gucci Mane = realest rapper ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - T.I. snitch to the feds - Young Jeezy was never bmf - 50 Cent snitch and was never in jail but a youthcamp - Game was never a banger but lived the life of his brother in his lyrics - Nas Escobar never sold drugs - Ice Cube never was a gangbanger - Dr Dre never was a gangbanger - 2pac was a ballerina and never sold drugs after he become famous he was doing some stupid stuff like beating and shooting at people because he though he could get away with it. Without Suge Knight 2pac was just a skinny motherfucker. Oh and i like his music so fuck you. - Mobb deep are the biggiest pussies in rap they are short as midgets and keep talking this g shit but never did g shit.

      I ain't a fan of 50 but I guess I should have mentioned 50 too. He was 100% a drug dealer in the past. 50 definitely shouldn't be on the list either.

      I know what u tryin' to say homie and u definitely right for the most part except for mentioning Mobb Deep. They from the hood, Queesbridge to be exact. QB wasn't exactly "a walk in the park" back in the days homie. NAS from the same hood too but I would say the MOBB were more G than NAS tho. The MOBB definitely been up to no good in their early days but why keep dealin' and bustin' your gat when u making stacks of cash from making dope music?

If you FAGGOTS on here (you know who you are) ain't got no love for KRS-ONE and don't have any KRS vinyls/CD's/MP3's in your collection then you really have no business listening to hip hop music and representing the culture. That's how important and respected KRS is to the hip hop community. Hip hop/rap music is mostly run by big corporations now and your favorite new generation so called rapper is nothing but a puppet.

    Dis old man have been ranting since I was a child and I hate people who always complain maybe I am like my father who told me never to rant but let my work speak for it self. Nobody cares what you want the radio to play and if you don't like what the radio play go get your own and play what you want to hear. Mr you always say shit and shit and shit but no body cares because what you eat or think you know don't make people shit or appear to be the right thing. You claim you came before this Youngin meaning they shouldn't exist and do their thing because you just ridiculous and hate any thing your foolish brain don't accept? Listen stop fooling around and face your family or go reconcile with your wife and be a father that does his job and not that one that rant all the time so things might appear the way he want it to be, who gets all he wants in life no one so get off your own dick and drink your own cup old ass biter.

      Hate to say it, but that's true. How could the mainstream "kill" KRS' career? He literally doesn't have any buzz left. Canibus might have more buzz than KRS. AND I MEAN NO DISRESPECT TO EITHER KRS OR CANIBUS. I am true fans of both. But it's true, if the radio played music from either of these dudes, they would lose listeners. Sad, but this pill-popping generation ain't looking for knowledge or wisdom... PEACE TO 'BIS and KRIS.

      Broke? So he does maybe 20 to 30 concerts are year around the world. Lets say he gets $20,000 a show. You do the math. If earning $500,000 or $600,000 a year just from touring is broke then you crazy. Lets not forgot royalties from all the albums and songs he's made over 30 years. Broke? Ain't no rappers who have made it are broke. And even if he only gets $10,000 a show then that's still roughly 300,000 he's earning. And that ain't small change.

      Broke, do you determine the worth of a human by money? If that's the case then you should kill yo damn self. Grow up dude and recognize the real.

    Real talk. He says he was here before the mainstream and he's now watching it crumble. Why should he be a part of that. That explains his statement. Very deep. KRS is a staple to the hip-hop world while the mainstream is like a revolving door. I buy his records because i'm a fan. KRS is one of the illest of all times. Those who do not understand his statement doesn't understand the hip-hop culture, just the rap game.

    I respect KRS-One as much as any true hiphop head, but this guy needs to shut up about shit that doesn't even matter. If you can get the underground to join in with the mainstream radio, why not do it. More publicity. It's what you do with the fame that matters. Staying true? Or selling out?

    Jay Z is the best rapper ever. I mean his really is... MCHG is the best album this year if you really understand the words put together in the album. Hov is the only rapper saying what he does and what his going to do and you see him do them.. Rap is a funny genre of music and jay embodies it and says it in his rap a long time before now just happens a lot of you blacks are just so lame to realize what his was saying, guess you all now understood him now that you're older which is a good thing now you don't want to dance but get bread. Lol how a lot of fake rapper came your way and sold fake attitude to you all, posing with guns in their album cover and other horrible things to prove they are real as the cover gets and most of them were your favorite rapper... I wonder what you fools listen to now they are no more. I mean DMX, Ja rule, Game, Camron, Dr, Dre Snoop, KRS one, Xzibit, Fat Joe, Nas, Buster, Twister, Lox, Eminem, Kurrpt I can go on and on with this new cats rapping their lame ass off saying nothing. But we Hov fan will have him all season till you fools are no more. I listen to him because his the best, realist and here to stay. Other rappers and their fans are visitors like Hov said.

      @ Men - Jay Z didn't even have the best album out of rappers who are over 40 this year. Life is Good was 10x the album that HGMC was. @Mike T - ill list. I still think its crazy that Run The Jewels was a free download.

    • mike t

      Get real. You're one of those lames that listens to 1 or 2 albums a year and thinks those albums are "the best". Jay-Z sucks, straight up. His first record was good but that's definitely not enough to warrant "best rapper ever". I could literally name a hundred other emcees before Jay-Z gets brought up. Best albums of the year so far; -Epidemic: Somethin For Tha Listeners -Castle: Gasface -Run The Jewels: Self-Titled -Ghostface/Apollo Brown: 12 Reasons to Die (Brown Tape) -RA the Rugged Man: Legends Never Die -Billy Woods/Blockhead: Dour Candy -Czarface: Self-Titled -Homeboy Sandman: Kool Herc (Fertile Crescent EP) No doubt you've listened to zero of these albums I just named, yet you can hand out a "best album of the year award". How does that work?

      If they play his music he'd sue, meaning he's not going to conform to radio programming and water down his music or the message in it, and it works for him obviously because most cats that fall off hard used to be on radio a lot, and he's about to hit 30yrs recording and tourig without the radio, he don't really even do "old school shows" hardly ever.

    I always respected this dude for bein' one of the originators, but honestly he's not that great as an emcee to me. Furthermore, this nigga trippin' talkin' about all this god/devil shit. First of all, neither exist at all (at least there's no existence of either existing in the first place). Second, this nigga morphed hip-hop into a religion which is bullshit.
