Awesome Kenny Parker Interview
by Serena Kim

KrsI am so amped right now about this Kenny Parker interview I found on unkut.com. I can't stop cheesing so hard, my face hurts. For all you young ass Chris Brown, Lil Weezy fans, Kenny Parker is KRS-One's brother. KRS is only one of the most significant pillars of hip hop still alive and walking. So his brother has all these hilarious stories about KRS's early days, when he was struggling to define himself as an emcee and bust lyrics over these grimy tapes, you could even hear a neighbor's dog barking in them. Kenny admits to how skeptical he was about KRS going after the legendary MC Shan with "The Bridge is Over," and how he couldn't believe how his weirdo older brother rocked Union Square and ultimately ended Shan's career. It's just an amazing perspective about a magical time in history.
