Hip Hop - "The Real True Story" - Who created Hip Hop Music? It's a curiously odd place to be... KRS One Photo courtesy of Creative Commons License At the moment, sitting between a rock and a hard place, but this is where we are at however uncomfortable.
KRS One - 12:41 - Success is the word!
Memories - hm-mm, well... I had written the song before I met Kris (KRS One). Scott (La Rock) was a fine young man that had been at me for a while because, I guess I as considered a pretty hot producer at the time - (executive producer of Lisa Lisa and Cult Jams first single, "I Wonder If I Take You Home", Octavia's single "2 The Limit", producing and managing other artists (Dhar Braxton), had ownership of Joyce Sims first big hit "You are My All and All" - but subsequently gave it back to them, rather then tying them up with no firm release date. I also got signed as an artists with Stock, Aitken and Waterman (PWL in London - Kylie Minogue, Rick Astley, Bananarama. Dead or Alive and Princess), at the time. Also had the number 3 song on top of the MusicWeek charts in London - (Mine All Mine by Cashflow - Polygram Records), which I wrote, produced and played the instruments on, along with "Tall Boy", Tom Garris (I published the original song as well too). I actually created the song to help my twin brother re-establish himself back in society (He had done a tough bid for a few years). His name is Kevin and was well known and friends with Afrika Bambaataa and that whole associated crew of Black Spades, (soon to be call The Nation Of Islam. Kris was a cool kid who had a lot of bitterness on his shoulders at the time. I guess this was because he was forced to live in a shelter and had nowhere else to turn. The South Bronx has always been really tough, but somehow we all managed to bond together, though things were a little cantankerous at times. Scott was always there as the consummate, caring peace maker. Scott was simply, the greatest caring soul who always worried about his fellow man, a kindness that would tragically end his benevolent, beautiful life.
On the day that Scott got killed, he and Kris came to me at Columbus Circle and asked me to come with them up to Sedgewick Ave (in the Bronx) and help them squash a beef between D-Nice and some other cat . I told them "bad move", "don't do it". "Let that shit die down before you even think about going to deal with it". Unfortunately, this was not meant to be.
I got the tragic news later on that evening and for me, that was sort of the ending for it all. Without Scott, what was the point? He was really the driving force for me to make this happen at all. Kris was never really happy with the track at all, thought it was to corny, but I had always had a reputation for pushing the envelop in other directions, just to break new ground and create opportunity for a greater amount of folks.
I did another record like it on Fred Munao's label (UTFO, The Real Roxanne), Select Records. I called it "Lifestyle of the Rich and Famous" - while everybody out there were concentrating on some RC Van Silk kind of stuff; and things like "the Vapors". All tracks along this line were strictly about the "Bling", even before anybody ever gave doing Rap
