When rappers talk hip-hop, they talk about KRS-One. The Bronx-based MC is considered one of the greatest of all time and wrote the book on the genre — literally. His “The Gospel of Hip Hop: The First Instrument” was released in 2009 and offered philosophies on rap, spirituality and staying true to yourself.
KRS-One has been in Fresno several times over the years to both lecture and perform. He returns Friday, March 20, at Fulton 55. The show is also a kick-off party for the classic hip-hop radio station 105.5 FM.
