Umschlagtext: The ascent of KRS-ONE (Knowledge Reigns Supreme Over Nearly Everyone) from homeless street kid to rap revolutionary to acclaimed lecturer, metaphysician, and intellectual is the stuff of Hiphop legend. With Boogie Down Productions and as a solo artist, KRS-ONE has played a crucial role throughout his career in bringing a social and political conscience to Hiphop, through such ground-breaking albums as By All Means Necessary, Criminal Minded, Edutainment, and Ghetto Music: The Blueprint Of Hiphop.
KRS-ONE is also one of the most important and relevant figures in African-American and Hiphop culture today. The keynote speaker at the Rock-and-Roll Hall of Fame?s historic conference in 1999 entitled "Hiphop: A Cultural Expression," KRS-ONE has organized and lectured at similar conferences at the United Nations and on campuses around the U.S., including Harvard, Yale, Columbia, and UCLA. He also founded the Stop the Violence Movement, HEAL (Human Education Against Lies), served as a spokesperson for the American Library Association?s literacy programs, and his latest effort, the Temple of Hiphop, is an organization with over 25,000 members that aspires to define, promote and preserve Hiphop culture and lifestyle.
In RUMINATIONS, KRS-ONE?s very first trade book, he reflects as only he can on a remarkable range of topics, including the past, present, and future of Hiphop, the most glaring challenges facing the music industry, the undeniable influence of African-American and urban culture on mainstream America, and the discipline and knowledge needed by today?s Hiphop artists to make it in a world where the odds are stacked against them. In fluid prose imbued with unwavering honesty and humanity, KRS-ONE addresses many of the most important social and political challenges facing Americans of all colors in the 21st century.
