The rapper known as KRS One was born Lawrence Krisna Parker in 1965 in New York City. KRS One left home while still a teenager, in search of a career as an MC. Alongside DJ Scott La Rock, KRS One released the album Criminal Minded in 1987, setting the stage for the era of gangsta rap which would dominate the decade following.
After the unfortunate death of DJ Scott La Rock in a shooting, KRS One forged ahead on his own, incorporating a new Jamaican sound into his music. He released the album By All Means Necessary in 1988 and the additional albums Edutainment (1990), Live Hardcore Worldwide (1991), and Sex and Violence (1992), before embarking on a full-fledged solo career. As a solo artist, KRS One released his self-titled album in 1995, followed by a number of additional albums, including The Sneak Attack (2001), Spiritual Minded (2002), Kristyles (2003), Keep Right (2004), Adventures in Emceein (2008), and The BDP Album (2012.)
In addition to his music, KRS One is also a strong voice against violence in the hip hop communities, having founded the Stop the Violence Movement in 1988. His ministry, the Temple of Hip-Hop, also has as its goal the advancement of a peaceful hip-hop culture for youth. For his work so far, KRS One has been recognized with a Lifetime Achievement Award from the BET Hip Hop Awards and a Living Legend Award from the Urban Music Awards.
KRS One continues to perform and record, with a new album release scheduled for the near future. He recently toured Australia for the first time in 2012.
