Lawrence “Kris” Parker (born August 20, 1965), better known by his stage names KRS-One (an abbreviation of “Knowledge Reigns Supreme Over Nearly Everyone”) and Teacha, is an American rapper, lyricist and occasional producer from New York. He rose to prominence as part of the hip hop group Boogie Down Productions, which he formed with DJ Scott La Rock in the mid-1980s. KRS-One is best known for his top hits, “Sound of da Police”, “Love’s Gonna Get’cha (Material Love)”, and “My Philosophy”, among others.

Boogie Down Productions received numerous awards and critical acclaim in their early years. Following the release of the group’s debut album, Criminal Minded, fellow artist Scott La Rock was shot and killed, but KRS-One continued the group, effectively as a solo project. He began releasing records under his own name in 1993. He is politically active, having started the Stop the Violence Movement after Scott’s death. He’s also a vegan activist, expressed in songs such as “Beef”. He is widely considered an influence to many hip hop artists, including Tupac and Eminem.

Lawrence Parker was born in the New York City borough of Brooklyn in 1965 to an American mother. His father is reported to be from the island of Trinidad, and his step-father was Jamaican. At age 16, he left home to become an MC, and began living at a homeless shelter in the South Bronx where he was dubbed “Krishna” by the residents due to his curiosity in the Hare Krishna spirituality of some of the anti-poverty workers. During his stay at the community shelter he encountered youth counselor Scott Sterling and there began a DJ/MC relationship. He also engaged in the street art activity graffiti under the alias KRS-One (Knowledge Reigns Supreme Over Nearly Everyone). Together he and Sterling, a.k.a. DJ Scott La Rock, created Boogie Down Productions, releasing their debut album, Criminal Minded, in 1987.

After five largely solo albums under the name “Boogie Down Productions,” KRS-One decided to set out on his own. On his first solo album, 1993’s Return of the Boom Bap, he worked together with producers DJ Premier, Kid Capri and Showbiz, the latter providing the track “Sound of da Police”. His second album, 1995’s KRS-One, featured Channel Live on “Free Mumia”, a song in which they criticize Civil Rights activist C. Delores Tucker among others. Other prominent guest stars on KRS-One included Mad Lion, Busta Rhymes, Das EFX and Fat Joe.

In 1991, KRS-One appeared on the alternative rock group R.E.M.’s single “Radio Song”, which appeared on the band’s album Out of Time, released the same year. In 1992, Bradley Nowell from Sublime featured an acoustic song named “KRS-One” with his voice and DJ’s samples.
In 1995, KRS organized a group called Channel Live, whose album Station Identification he produced most of, along with Rheji Burrell and Salaam Remi.

In 1997, KRS surprised many with his release of the album I Got Next. The album’s lead single, “Step into a World (Rapture’s Delight)”, containing an interpolation of punk and new wave group Blondie, was accompanied by a remix featuring commercial rap icon Puff Daddy; another track was essentially a rock song. While the record would be his best-selling solo album (reaching #3 on the Billboard 200), such collaborations with notably mainstream artists and prominent, easily recognizable samples took many fans and observers of the vehemently anti-mainstream KRS-One by surprise.

In August 1997, in an appearance on Tim Westwood’s BBC Radio 1, KRS-One criticized the station for not playing underground hip hop while also crediting Westwood for his promotion of hip hop over time.
