    You would think that being KRS-One’s stepson would have some sort of excitement to it (being around Hip Hop and having contacts and such) …

    It goes to show you, happiness aint about money or fame or nothing. Happiness comes from within yourself. It ain’t material.

    Fck HH u bitch, ain’t notthin funny bout this type of tragedy. True hip hop fans show love to artists cause we understand they have a life behind the music, a family to go home to and feed. Show some Respect.

    Keep your head up KRS. Real hip hop fans got yo back.
