KRS-One is right up there when the greatest emcees of the world are mentioned.


The legendary rapper has released 22 albums over his storied career spanning 35 years and now he's returning with his 23rd offering, Between Da Protests. 2020 has a been a testing year, especially for black people and the Bronx rapper is exploring all the revolutionary themes on this 13-song album.


"This is revolution music! I was going to wait until sometime in 2021 to begin the releasing of singles, but I think we need this right now! As I see it, it is not just about protesting injustice; it is also about being just. It is also about staying motivated and focused upon what is real and what is right, and not getting distracted by the obvious hype," said KRS about the new album.


"Between Da Protests is my artistic effort to inspire those that openly protest injustice not to become complacent or demotivated, but to keep planning, keep learning and keep marching toward justice! We've been here before, struggle is eternal, and so are our victories over it! Hard-ass beats under that original raw street-rhyming is what Between Da Protests is all about. Enjoy."
