Duck Down Records Signs KRS-One; “He’s On My Label Now,” Says Buckshot

krs-one.jpgIn an exclusive interview with XXLMag.com, Black Moon front man, Buckshot, has announced that Duck Down Records has signed the legendary KRS-One. “Yeah, we just signed KRS-One to Duck Down,” Buckshot told XXLMag.com. “He’s on my label now. We’re going hard, as far as production wise.” Buckshot, who is co-CEO of Duck Down Records with Dru Ha, is also working another album with producer 9th Wonder entitled The Formula. The LP is the follow up to 2005’s Chemistry. “It’s a whole different time,” Buck says in regards to the album’s direction. ‘It’s a different scene. It’s a reflection of what needs to be said and it’s my manifestation. I’m trying to show people that I’m actually greater at what I do then what is perceived when I come up with concepts and stories. The things I do lyrically on this album aren’t easy. That’s the whole point of hip-hop, to do what’s not easy.” The Formula will be released this fall.

    @Black Genius comments.

    It don’t even surprise me anymore to hear people say things like this. I must be gettin old or something, cause as far as HipHop goes(to me at least), this is some “BIG NEWS”…..Krs-1 signs to DUCK DOWN!!

    Sometimes I forget that that alot of these new HipHop fans are like 15 years young than me.

    Well…if you don’t know…this is some big news, now ya know. KRS is a living legend in HipHop and Boot Camp have been and always will be relavent and living legends in their own right.

    Do your history and show some respect for HipHop before you start running your mouth about Emcees of this stature.

  • Freddy(Vega$)

    Black Genuius is a Idiot!! KRS+9th Wonder= CRACK Homey. do u really think there music is going to be geared towards clowns like you??? NO they got there own demographic and they will Succeed! DUCK DOWN is doin they thing thing……CURTIS……

  • Planet Harlem

    You’ve got the nerve to call yourself “Black Genius”? Your a joke and, your punch line aint even funny. Krs1 is and will always be the man. But you remind me of a line from Slick Ricks track “Indian Girl” ….”Pussy’s ain’t suppose to speak. Haaaaa!!!

  • Hiphop4eva1

    im lookin forward to hearin the chemistry on that..also, ONE OF THE BEST MC’S EVER IS A FEMALE, LYRICALLY UP THERE WITH JAY, NAS, YOU NAME IT..AND SHE SEXY!..I ALMOST DIDN’T BELIEVE IT MYSELF..SEE FOR YASELF

    This is big,I wonder when that first CD drop.

  • RespectDue

    KRS ONE joins forces with one of the most highly respected Labels in the Independent Game. I’m definitely feeling this news and wish KRS ONE and the Duck Down Team much success.

  • wu

    y’all need 2 get off krs-one’s dick and no i’m not 15 and hav been listening to hip-hop since the late 80′s but krs shd call it quits seriously.

  • JSUN

    Thee Imperial Grand Cee’s post is on point.. Young hoppas these days know nothing about the roots of Hip Hop.. KRS with BootCamp is no doubt great news for Hip Hop fans.. The lyrical content of todays “rappers” (not MC’s) is wack.. This will breath new life into dieing music.. KRS is a true MC and so is every MC signed to BootCamp.. Out..

  • http://bkmigumatverizon.net ima customer

    i don’t know if this will work. i would’ve like to see krs on a major lable of today. i know he did the jive thing,however the young listeners of today need to be familiar with his outstanding contributions to hip-hop. or better yet how about krs one the prez of def jam? him being a pure hip-hop head and a mc i think that would send shock waves in the industry. plus it will give the music a fresh new approach. i was at the dedication concert to melle mel & the furious 5 a couple of weeks ago every artist did their thing, sadly the media of today did not report any of this, but krs ripped it! you want big news; mc shan in the bronx solo, big daddy kane brought back ’88, man he was dope. dougie & slick rick man you young fucks don’t know real hip-hop. back to krs he was there and guess who his dj was? marley mal, damn! you should’ve seen it in the Bx, where it all started, krs in his zone, tearing it up to classical music. man, what more can i say? hey young world you must learn. hey media world show some respect to the pioneers you’re only here because others paid the price, just like malcolm, martin and those before them. peace.

    congrats on signing a legend, much luck and success.

  • Banga

    There are still true bootcamp soldierz out there.
    Keep holdin the front line. For all yall young headz that don’t know nothing about bootcamp do your research because this is what true hip hop movement is all about. Never did they watered down their music for commercial success. Even a dude like Inspectah Deck from the Wu-Tang Clan said that if you want to study hip hop look at Duck Down Records, it will tell you what you need to know. And oh yeah my dude Tek from Smif N’Wessun be down here at my hood in Trenton NJ. Shout out to the homey!

    “1st to say who gives a flying fuck about this shit.”

    EVERYBODY. And cats actually WONDER what’s wrong with the music these days. Young, black people these days are singling themselves out as the most disrespectful, ignorant, non-progressive and POINTLESS segment of our society…and I’m Black myself. Where’s the respect for what this man laid down? And who the hell is ANYONE to tell KRS that he needs to stop what is driving him to still create? Certainly not you, dude. If you’ve still got the fire in your heart and the people (not the mass media) still have love for your words, why deny them? Why deny yourself? For little, ignorant, self-centered punks like you?

  • youngworld34

    BLACK DUMMY……cause thats what you are……i hope your not for real……where are you from? cause you know nothing about the culture….if i was standing next to you i’d take a sock… dip it in a bucket of piss and slap da shyt out of you….what a nimrod!….lemme guess …you got a poster of young joc on ya wall huh?……captain fukkin cornball…..i know metal heads that wouldnt even fix they mouth to say that shyt…..you need to be sodimized wit a sand paper dyck

    LOL. The south aint buying this shit. we run the world.

  • jeffery labowski

    even though KRS is getting up there in age, i thought HipHop Lives displayed that he’s still a dope MC. and now he’s joining Duck Down? for true hip-hop heads, this should be bigger than Flopp…er, Mobb Deep joining those other clowns. This would be like Ice-T joining NWA back in the day.

  • aludin

    just think, krs-one, sean p, and buckshot on a track produced by khrysis…

  • da_realting

    dru ha and duck dwn doin it up!!! big up kris and keep these clowns guessing! chek that lil brother for that 9th wonder sound!! bring hip hop back niccas!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • rico

    i AGREE WITH JUNCLASSIC ENTA DA STAGE IS ONE OF THE BEST ALBUMS OF ALL TIME BLACK GENIUOS’S COMMENT IS TYPICAL OF TODAY’S SO CALLED HIP HOP FANS THEY JUDGE IT BY RECORD SALES AND WHO’S FACE IS ON T.V. THIS IS HIP HOP FOOL NOT POP OR ROCK THE MORE GRIMY THE BETTER

  • http://www.myspace.com/darenegods E.A.

    i agree with black genius but i also disagree cause it’s cool to hear legends like krs still make music music is timeless you know but at the same time them old dudes gotta give it up let the youth past the torch yall feel any different lets polictic on myspace more about i could throw so much valid points

    peace

  • WU

    get off krs’1 dick all of u..u might as well lick his balls. krs1 dsnt sell shit and yes he is a legend but todays listeners aren’t interested in him. His style is played out.Other legends like nas and jayz have a way of still staying afloat so krs1 needs 2 learn 4rm them.

  • aludin

    kingdom come and hip hop is dead were both wack albums. so what if krs sells less albums? a lot of dope shit isnt being bought. you’re sounding like a 50 cent dick rider, talking about sales. who the fuck cares?

  • Steels

    damn… thats wassup

    krs and boot camp.. thats a crazy combo right there

    gotta see it happen first tho

    i aint even kno krs was cool like that with buckshot and the rest of the camp..

    anyways good looks on the news!

  • wu
