KRS-One & Buckshot
Did you ever critique each other's rhymes? You probably can't tell KRS-One to go rewrite his verse.
Buckshot: No, I would say that to Kris in a heartbeat, but I didn't have to. I've been with a lot of good rappers and known rappers and said, "We gotta do something else." What we did do was say, "That ain't working. Get that whole song out of here." We had two songs we threw out. One of them wasn't whack; it just wasn't fitting the concept of the show. And that's what the whole KRS-One/Buckshot album is based around; it's based all around one show. If you could sit in the crowd, you will hear the show that you want to watch.
So you'll be touring in support of this album?
That's what's the whole thing is about. Me and Kris are show-hungry. We love doing shows. Travelling is a different thing but when we get onstage, that all makes up for it.
What's the most important skill one needs to survive in hip-hop in 2009?
Everything is taking a transition. In hip-hop today you need patience, discipline and obedience. Those are the three elements. You gotta keep yourself around people that are smarter than you and better than you at what you want to do. That's what will make you become better. (Duck Down)
